Mackmyra Svensk Whisky // Sweden
Mackmyra Brukswhisky was first introduced to the market in 2010 is now part of the Swedish distillery's core range. In international markets, it's sold as "The Swedish Whisky." A bottle redesign in 2012 features playful sketches drawn years ago by the owners during their initial planning stages for the distillery. This whisky combines barrels of single malt in ex-bourbon, ex-sherry, and new Swedish oak, with a touch of smoky malt whisky. It's bottled at 41.4% ABV.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"The sweet side of the malt is showing itself in the nose with notes of green apple, pear, banana, citrus and more gourmet flavours including honey, custard cream, vanilla, butterscotch. The palate, however, is rather different: fresh, grassy and peppery. A pleasant duality in this dram then and overall, an easy-drinking nectar to drink in good company!"
