I admit, for I have a weakness for Scandinavia. It is not a secret that I am enthusiastic about the Swedisch Mackmyra whisky. It is hard to pronounce the names of the whisky, but that is always a challenge to be accepted.
Moment Körsbärsrök, cherrysmoke was a challenge. And the Moment range is part of the most exclusive range of Mackmyra.
Moment Körsbärsrök is a smoky whisky with a peaty spicinessand sweet notes of cherry. The recipe of the whisky ismade from a combination of our smoky and unsmoked newmake,where both was distilled at Mackmyra Bruk in the yearof 2010. The smoky new-make was aged in ex-Bourbon casksin the sizes 100 to 200 litres. The unsmoked part was aged inex-Bourbon and American oak casks seasoned with Germancherry wine. The medium sweet cherry wine is perfect for cask-seasoning, and gives the whisky fruity, intense notes of cherry.Produced in limited edition of 1 500 bottles.
