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.
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.
