A well developed, rich and smooth single malt is already a stunning whisky, but with just a little more time in the cask, we think it could be one of the best 200L Mackmyra single casks we’ve seen yet.
  • DESCRIPTION
  • CASK INFORMATION

With cask #17257 being filled on 14th January 2013, this 8 year old single malt whisky will be 9 years old when it comes to be bottled. Our Elegant recipe new make spirit was distilled in our ground-breaking Gravity distillery, before being taken to the famous Bodås mines where this 200L virgin American oak barrel was filled and left to mature beneath a mountain, 50m underground, until it was specially selected in 2021 to be shared via the Still In Cask program. Mackmyra’s Elegant recipe new make works wonders in American oak; the typical Mackmyra notes of ripe orchard fruits and warm gentle spices are complemented beautifully by the vanilla, caramel, dried orange peel, and brown sugar imparted by the influence of the American oak.

A superb and balanced single malt whisky, made entirely from Swedish ingredients. Impeccable water sourced from springs in the nearby Valboåsen hills, a flavoursome brewers barley called Tipple and Kronjäst yeast, which is often used by Swedish bakers to make sweet breads and pastries.

Elegant
Mackmyra’s elegant recipe is characterised by the following groups of flavours: fruity, with notes of citrus and pear. Spiciness with notes of aniseed, ginger, cinnamon and cardamom. Herbs, with notes of tobacco leaves, grass and pepper, as well as nutty, with notes of almond. The elegant recipe is the perfect choice for those looking to fully release the oakiness of the cask.

American Oak
Whisky aged in new American oak gets a complex and rich oakiness with clear notes of vanilla and caramel fudge. The fresh oak makes the whisky mature intensely and gives a powerful, round taste with a harmonious balance between sweetness and spiciness. The colour turns dark amber.
Bodås Mine
In the south of Gästrikland is our largest and oldest whisky warehouse located, surrounded by a mighty forest. In here, the whisky is securely matured, 50 metres below ground in the mountain. Originally built to extract ore, the space is now given to a more precious product
