Mackmyra Moment Karibien.
Mackmyra Moment is a series of whiskies from their most exclusive casks, handpicked by Master Blender Angela D’Orazio.
Moment Karibien has now arrived, the much-anticipated sequel to Mackmyra Vinterdröm. Moment Karibien is an elegant single-malt whisky, partly matured in casks that have previously held Plantation Barbados & Jamaica rum but also been flavoured with whisky from ex-Oloroso and ex-sherry casks. Around 75% of the whisky has been finished in rum casks. The result is a spicy, fruity whisky with warm notes of rum and vanilla oak. The whisky from the various casks that make up Moment Karibien are at least 8 years old and at most 12. Matured 50 metres underground in Bodås Mine. The whisky has been manufactured in a limited edition of only 4,137 bottles.
Nose: Fruity, spicy and buttery, with notes of vanilla, toffee and roasted oak. Evoking berries, there are aromas of rum, dried fruit and pear.
Palate: Spicy and fruity with warm notes of rum, Oloroso and oaky vanilla. The texture is slightly oily.
Finish: Fruity and oaky with a hint of vanilla.
