Complex and unique flavours of this wine gives this seasonal edition a soft and spicy character, perfectly suited for autumn

DESCRIPTION

Skördetid (Harvest time) is an elegant Swedish single malt whisky partially matured in Italian Amarone casks. The whisky was initially matured in the Bodås mine in Sweden in our Mackmyra casks, and to finish the whisky, a high proportion spent a final six months in Masi 600-litre oak barrels.

The aroma is spicy, fruity and herbal with warm vinous grape notes and a slightly mineral tone. On the palate, the flavours are fruity and spicy with raisins and dried pears, with a touch of ginger and vanilla. The mouthfeel is creamy and medium-bodied. The long finish is fruity and spicy with notes of oak and warm raisins.

Masi Costasera Amarone

Masi Costasera Amarone is a deep ruby-red wine that has powerful, complex aromas of dried plums and balsamic (anise, fennel, mint) traces. The wine is quite dry on the palate, soft and with bright acidity. The wine shows flavours of baked cherry, chocolate and cinnamon. Structured but noble, delicate tannins precede a long finish.

Skördetid has a natural colour that comes from its maturation in these wine casks. The whisky comes into its own in the darker autumn and winter evenings. It can be enjoyed just as it is or as an accompaniment to a fine dessert.

Awards & Reviews

Raffaele Boscaini, MASI TECHNICAL GROUP:

It is very fascinating to see how our barrels, which have stored Masi Costasera for a long time, have transferred the character and the specific aromas from our unique wine to another unique product. The taste experiences are completely different when you compare the two products separately, but the whisky that has been stored on our barrels has got Costasera's distinct flavors of dark cherries in combination with the typical fruitiness, the plant-based tones together with the vanilla caramel taste from Mackmyra. ”
