Mackmyra Vinterrök Swedish Single Malt Whisky

Image featuring box and bottle of Mackmyra Vinterrock Swedish Single Malt WhiskyLiterally translating as ‘winter smoke’, the Vinterrök in the name of this incredible Swedish whisky denotes its slightly smoky filling, which is achieved by combining two of the distillery’s malts.

The first of these malts is the classic 7 to 8-year old Mackmyra distillate, which is matured in sherry, ex-bourbon and classic Swedish Oak barrels. The filling is then added to by a fine, smoky single malt that has been matured in ‘Strong Ale’ barrels for 5 years. The production process does not include any colouring or cool-filtering, resulting in a beautifully pale golden, smooth and tasty whisky with an alcohol content of 46.1{beaaa18c7111f78171f7049db4a26534557444383bfe8747491a307dda3fec2c}.

The characteristic nose of this excellent Swedish whisky combines floral notes, pear and citrus with hints of anise, ginger and pepper to produce a smoky, spicy and fruity character.

This smoky and spicy theme is carried into this heavenly liquid’s oily (in the best possible sense of the word!) taste with notes of pears and citrus; vanilla, oak and hops. Perfectly balanced, this single malt combines fruitfulness transcending into an interplay of caramel, oak and vanilla with a well-rounded, long-lasting spicy finish.

My Verdict

This heavenly Swedish Single Malt is available from Amazon at an RRP of £64/bottle – and well worth the investment! If you believe single malts must be Scottish to be exquisite, think again – the Mackmyra Vinterröck is exceptional and without doubt one of the best whiskies I have ever had the pleasure to taste. Highly recommended not only for Father’s Day but for any special occasion.
