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.
Mackmyra is now introducing a new limited edition in the exclusive Moment series; it is aimed at upcoming winter festivities and dinners. Moment Körsbärsrök (Cherry Smoke) is a sophisticated single malt whisky that has matured at Bodås Mine since being distilled at Mackmyra Bruk.
This whisky provides an elegant balance between spiciness, sweetness and smoke. It will be launched as a very limited edition that can be ordered from 11 November 2020.
Swedish whisky hits me at the right spot again. I’ve got a weakness for Scandinavia, there was no way I would dislike the whisky. At the contrary, I love it. Even Svensk Rök (Swedish Smoke) has a particular smell and palate that keeps you calm at all times.
The whisky reminds me of yoga, silence for 1.5 hours and just enjoying the moment and the positions. Listening to a calm voice and letting it all in. Similar with this whisky is my experience, very smooth
Waiting for the perfect moment to try Mackmyra Moment prestige. But what is the best moment to drink this whisky.
Mackmyra Moment Prestige (46,1%) is an eleven year old whisky aged on casks of French oak that previously held wine from the artisinal Champagne producer Philipponnat. When making Champagne, Philipponnat only uses the finest grapes, mainly from Premier and Grand cru vineyards, and then let parts of the wine age on oak casks.
To the whisky, these casks bring crisp notes of white wine, grapefruit, bread and toasted oak.
Mackmyra Moment Fjällmark, a Swedish single malt whisky is part of the Moment series of the Mackmyra distillery. It is the series of their most exclusive casks, handpicked by Master Blender Angela D’Orazio.
Mackmyra Moment Fjällmark was for me the perfect whisky to celebrate Burnsnight 2019, that took place on the 25th of January.
A night of whisky and poetry.
Hello, my name is Johan. Originally from the Netherlands, but I live in Sweden since the year 2008.
I became more or less seriously interested in whisky and everything around whisky in the autumn of 2014 when a trail running friend and I visited the Glenkinchie distillery south of Edinburgh. We planned a weekend filled with trail running in the Pentland Hills and around Arthurs Seat, but in that weekend we both became whisky “believers”. We truly believed, from that moment, that the Glenkinchie whisky we tasted was “heaven on earth”.
Sometimes there is that feeling inside, a feeling to grab some time for yourself, just for you to relax. That is what I thought while enjoying a nice evening, legs up and with the radio in the background. Moment Körsbär was my choice of whisky to give me that pleasure.
Mackmyra Swedish Whisky was finished in sweet cherry wine casks. If you look close enough, you can see an intense pink sweetness in the colour of this elegant whisky. You will fall in love in an instant.
Mackmyra Skördetid, a beautiful single malt whisky from Sweden. Skördetid, which is Swedish for “harvest time”, is the result of close collaboration between Mackmyra and the Italian wine producer Masi, and is available in limited quantities.
Mackmyra always surprises me with their amazing releases. And this time, they surprised me with a seasonal whisky with Amarone cask finishing.
This is an elegant single malt whisky from the Swedish distillery of Mackmyra, has been matured for over ten years, 50 metres under ground at Mackmyra’s own Bodås mine warehouse.
The whisky is a real addition to your whisky cabinet. The Mackmyra 10 yr old (46,1%) is an amazing whisky with a fabulous label. And the whisky pairs very well with a nice piece of fudge.
