Mackmyra “Sweden Rock” 15 year
The recipe basis for Sweden Rock 2015 Limited Edition is Mackmyra's elegant, unsmoked whisky that has been in Ex-Bourbon casks since 2008.
It has since been blended with whisky that has been in Swedish and American oak casks that previously contained wild raspberry wine.
Finally, a small amount of Makcmyra's smoky whisky has been added to the recipe to give a touch of spiciness and attitude before it is bottled at 40% strength.
The result, was a whisky that both fans of Mackmyra and Sweden Rock can take to heart. This whisky was cold filtered.
