ABOUT THE WHISKY
Mackmyra began as an idea formed by 8 friends on a skiing trip in 1998 - each had brought a bottle of malt whisky to share, and the topic of conversation turned to how whisky is made, and why there wasn't a Swedish one... the result is Mackmyra Svensk Whisky, which first began distilling at the end of 1999. They began with a small 100litre copper boiler at the Bruk mill, which gave them only 30l of whisky per distillation cycle. This was the inspiration for the small 30l casks the distillery uses today - smaller casks result in faster maturation. Production was expanded in 2002, but remains very small by international standards. Swedish oak is used extensively, and there is a consistent effort to ensure that Mackmyra whisky exemplifies a specifically Swedish character in their whiskies. A large proportion of their barrels are stored in the disused Bodas Mine.

TASTING NOTES
Aged in rum casks from Plantation Rum, sourced from their distilleries in Barbados and Jamaica. Remarkably refined, with subtle but complex aromas - caramelised sugar, rich cream, tropical fruit notes and a more angry, vegetal note in the background, possibly derived from the Jamaican rum casks. The palate is full-bodied and rounded off by cinnamon and a hint of cloves, old oak and earthy spice. The finish is long and luscious.

FOOD PAIRING
Best enjoyed neat; a drop of water might help bring out additional flavours. Dark chocolate would be a very enjoyable food-pairing.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Limited release of 4137 numbered bottles; this whisky is blended from casks which have been ageing in the Bodas Mine.
