Mackmyra launches exclusive smoky edition

The limited-edition bottling is perfect for the festive season, with hints of cherry
Mackmyra has launched Moment Körsbärsrök, a smoky new limited-edition expression that is part of the Moment series. Created with the purpose of being enjoyed as part of winter festivities, the new single malt has hints of cherry and spice to warm the cockles.

The spirit was distilled at Mackmyra Bruk in 2010-2011 and was matured in ex-Bourbon casks, as well as distillates matured in casks that were saturated with cherry wine to give the whisky a fruity sweetness.

“In my opinion, a mature and smoky whisky such as this, with final maturing in cherry wine casks, is a real ‘end-of-the-year’ whisky. It is the perfect accompaniment to a Roquefort cheese or a soft, mature Brie at the end of a nice dinner with family and friends in the autumn darkness. It has a nicely distinct smoky character that doesn’t dominate the other finely-tuned flavours in the whisky too much,” says Mackmyra master blender Angela D’Orazio.

Moment Körsbärsrök will be launched as a limited edition of 1,500 bottles on 25 November 2020.
