MACKMYRA Vinterrok

Single Malt, Sweden / Gavleborg County, 70cl, Ref: 19708

Following the rhythm of the seasons, Mackmyra invites us to discover every aspect of this single malt. This winter whisky is produced using a combination of ex-bourbon casks, Swedish oak casks and ex-sherry casks. It is then finished in beer casks. Though the outdoor temperature can easily drop below zero, the medicinal, hot character shows that inside this Vinterrök intense heat reigns.

Profile: hot and medicinal. Reinvigorated by a fruity acidity (Pippin apple, Mirabelle plum, grapefruit). Creamy at the end of the palate.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : deep gold with green hues.
  • Nose : both fresh and heady. A combination of vanilla, herbaceous (cut hay) and candied lemon notes, the initial nose is also spicy (clove, star anise) and medicinal (ointment). Once aerated, a layer of liquorice holds up new spices (ginger, cinnamon) and malted barley. Ripe fruit (pear, pineapple) then nestles at the back of the aromatic palette.
  • Palate : lively, vigorous. More powerful than the nose lets on, the attack amplifies the malt’s hot, medicinal register. Reinvigorated by a fruity acidity (Pippin apple, Mirabelle plum, grapefruit), the mid-palate clearly evokes fields of still-green barley. Dried fruits (almond, walnut) lends a creaminess to the end of the palate.
  • Overall : long, indulgent. Vanilla and chocolate are the main ingredients here in the finish, which evoke a number of delicious desserts. It lingers with notes of frangipani and hazelnut. The retro-nasal olfaction is mentholated and roasted (brewed tea, coffee beans). Following in the example of the nose, the empty glass is spicy (saffron) and medicinal.
The brand

The brand

Located in the province of Gästrikland, the Mackmyra distillery first opened its doors in 1999. Unique in more than one respect, Mackmyra was the first distillery in Sweden to produce whisky. It produces single malts produced from Swedish barley and sources its water from an underground spring fed by the hills of Valboåsen. While part of its whisky stock is left to mature in 100 litre casks, the Mackmyra distillery also uses first-fill ex-bourbon barrels that, once filled, are stocked in a warehouse 50 metres underground in the “Bodäs” mine. It also uses new Swedish oak casks from a forest located on the island of Visingsö, planted over 160 years ago to provide a source of wood for the construction of military navy boats.
