  • DESCRIPTION
  • TASTING NOTES

Preludium:04 Gruvlagrad Elegans (Mine stored elegance), is the fourth edition in the series Mackmyra Preludium, and is a tribute to our own whisky warehouse - Bodås mine - where we store the liquid gold 50 metres underground.

This edition was our first whisky release where every cask was matured in this amazing and unique location. To celebrate this, and to add a touch of occasion to this expression, Preludium:04 is also Mackmyra's first wine-finished release using champagne seasoned casks from Philipponnat. This finish that has gone on to inspire expressions including Moment Prestige.

Nose: Very fruity with aromas of pear, banana, caramel and vanilla candy, roasted oak, honey and chocolate. A slightly integrated smokiness can be sensed.

Taste: Fiery with caramel and vanilla tones and lightly roasted oak barrels. A balanced little smoke loop is embedded in the taste with a little fresh saltiness. 

Aftertaste: The aftertaste is freshly fruity, slightly sour and buttery.

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.
