  • DESCRIPTION
  • TASTING NOTES
  • CASKS

Limited Edition:  4111 bottles produced

Following a tour at Mackmyra’s main storage in Bodås, Efva Attling has – together with Master Blender, Angela D’Orazio – handpicked some of our finest casks.The 19 casks that caught Efva’s attention were mainly Oloroso, American oak and ex-Bourbon barrels, a majority of which had been saturated with Swedish birch tree sap wine. 

A request to create more prominent sweetness resulted in the use of a cask which had previously held cherry wine.The result is a sophisticated and fruity whisky, with soft notes of oak and birch, combined with slight spicy tones of red berries.

The edition is ornamented with a polished silver cork, designed by Efva.

Nose: Fruity, vinous notes and a herbal spiciness together with vanilla, toasted oak, pear, fudge, warm grapes, white pepper, anise, ginger and cardamom..

Taste: Fruity, with round notes of oak. Slightly spicy, with tones of red berries, blossom, pear fudge and white pepper. Soft tobacco leaves and vanilla. A light oily texture and medium-bodied.

      The Moment Edition Story


      Down in Bodås mine, thousands of casks are stored which are periodically quality tested by Mackmyra's Master Blender, Angela D'Orazio. During her trips to the mine, she sometimes encounters some casks that stand out from the rest, and these casks deserve to be bottled as they are or in an edition with an extra clear vision. Due to this reason Mackmyra created the exclusive series called Moment. 


      Here, Mackmyra's most special casks and recipes come into their own. Each edition  has a very limited amount bottles that are released and you can expect at least one new Moment edition per year.
