  • DESCRIPTION
  • TASTING NOTES

From the beginning, Mackmyra set out to create a truly Swedish whisky and with arguably the most influential aspect being the cask, maturing whisky in oak grown in  Sweden required exploration. Preludium:02 The Swedish Oak showcases this new whisky finish in its very first release to the public.

Over time, this product has developed to become the key ‘ingredient’ in our Svensk Ek expression, as well as popular choices in our Reserve Cask program. Here you can now own the final bottles from where this new finish began.

Nose: Fruity with intense spiciness and tone of roasted barrels.

Taste: Fruity with spicy notes of cedar and sandalwood and large hints of oak, honey and dried fruit. 

Aftertaste: The aftertaste is rich and oaky with a spicy herb.

The Preludium Series Story


Mackmyra Preludium was a series of six editions that were bottled in a limited edition between 2006 and 2007 and were some of the very first commercial releases for Sweden's first single malt distillery. 


These expressions represented where Mackmyra wanted to explore in the future; from creating a 100% Swedish smoke recipe, creating new and exciting cask, maturing whisky in a mine,  to using Swedish Oak for the first time to mature whisky.  Each of these editions can be considered the 'teaser tasters' from the first years of Mackmyra and should be treated as such. They represent the history of our distillery and each is a chapter of how we began to create Sweden's first single malt.
