Mackmyra Svensk Rök
Mackmyra Svensk Whisky // Sweden
Launched in 2013, Svensk Rök translates to "Swedish Smoke" and is the first smoky single malt whisky from Mackmyra. The traditional Swedish way of smoking food was over burning juniper twigs, so for this expression, juniper wood is used to malt the barley. After maturation in Swedish oak barrels, it's bottled without an age statement at 46.1% ABV. Note: This is not available in the US.
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 whisky has a delicious citrusy nose with smoky hints as well as vanilla and toffee. The palate continues to feature those earthy notes but adds a very spicy note, all wrapped into a sweet vanilla cloud. The finish is smoky and woody. Overall, this Mackmyra expression a definite must-try for any Islay whisky enthusiast willing to try something new!"
