Sweden’s first major malt whisky with an age statement, Sweden’s Mackmyra is to launch Ten Years, a Swedish 10-year old single malt whisky.
It will be the first Mackmyra whisky with an age statement available to a wider public. Set for release in Sweden on 5 May, it will also be available in selected export markets.
Ten Years has been matured in ex-bourbon casks as well as new American oak casks that held Oloroso sherry for some months. The whisky is created from the Mackmyra unpeated “elegant” recipe.
Ten Years is an elegant single malt whisky that has been matured for over ten years, 50 metres under ground at Mackmyra’s own Bodås mine warehouse. This seasonal whisky will be available in much greater quantities than Moment Tolv, which Mackmyra launched in February this year. In total, there are 20,000 bottles, of which 12,000 were bought by Systembolaget, the Swedish alcohol monopoly retailer. The remaining volume will be sold in Mackmyra’s prioritized export markets.
– We are very proud to launch Ten Years. It is a special whisky which we have given a great deal of attention to and so it gives us extra pleasure to be able to share it with so many in the first really large public release of a Mackmyra whisky with an age statement, says Magnus Dandanell, CEO.
Ten Years has a natural golden-yellow colour with spicy, floral and fruity aromas with a soft oakiness and notes of berries and dried fruit. The whisky is medium-bodied and has spicy, fruity flavours with a touch of vanilla oak, raisin and anise. The finish is long, and again shows berries, soft fruit and oak with a lightly vinous tone.
– It is very special to have blended our oldest whisky from four different types of cask. Demand has been great and it will be exciting to see how it will be received, says Angela D’Orazio, Master Blender at Mackmyra.
