Mackmyra - Stjärnrök - Swedish Single Malt Whisky
Mackmyra Stjärnrök (Star Smoke) is a Swedish single malt whisky created with the colder, darker months of the year in mind.
This edition began with the handmade smoky Rök recipe, which was then matured in oloroso, ex-bourbon and American oak casks for body, complexity and sweetness. To balance the
smoke and the deep, dark notes from the oloroso casks, it was then complemented with a generous selection of older ex-bourbon casks filled with an unsmoked elegant recipe, contributing vibrant aromas of citrus and vanilla. The whisky is then brought together by the addition of spicy Swedish oak casks saturated with cloudberry wine, for a deliciously warming finish.
Nose: Spicy with clearly smoky notes of peat and juniper. Fruity with raisins, nuts, dried fruit and toasted bread. Vanilla fudge, tobacco leaves, sandalwood, cedar and ginger.
Palate: Smoky, fruity and spicy with fine notes of peat and juniper. Minerals and herbs followed by vanilla fudge, raisins, dried fruit, orange peel and dark chocolate. Spices of roasted oak barrels, sandalwood and cedar, anise, white pepper and ginger. The texture is slightly oily with light oak spices.
Finish: Round smoke in harmony with exotic and dried fruits.
