One of the fine offerings from Swedish distillery Mackmyra. This is their smoky, peaty expression, hence the name Svensk Rök, which means Swedish Smoke. It’s unequivocally fragrant and rich, with hints of vanilla, oak and even juniper smoke wafting in.
Nose: Earthy peat, warm smoke, vanilla fudge and a whisper of citrus.
Palate: There’s that bright juniper note! Sweet soot, and just a little more vanilla to give it a subtle sweet centre.
Finish: Plenty of oak and smoke last on the finish.
Overall: Ooh yes, fans of Islay whisky will want to have a taste of this unique whisky.
