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.
Nose: Fruity, berry and slightly smoky with aromas of citrus, pear and raspberry. It has a soft vanilla oak with a slight spiciness and herbal notes of anise and sandalwood.
Taste: Slightly oaky, berry and fruity with a light tobacco spice.
Summary: Vanilla caramel, pear and citrus in a balanced spicy slightly smoky and oaky taste.
The Sweden Rock Story
Sweden's largest festival has sold out in recent years. Hosting artists such as Def Leppard, Judas Priest, Mötley Crüe and Toto. All of whom have performed in Sölvesborg at the festival. In addition to the festival and its own magazine, it has also become successful in the beverage industry with launches of its own Scotch malt whisky, rum, beer and red wine.
Mackmyra and Sweden Rock Festival have long talked about collaborating, but it was only when they visited Mackmyra's Bodås mine and then the Gravity distillery in Gävle that the idea became a reality.
Together they chose casks and with the help of Mackmyra's internationally renowned Master Blender, Angela D'Orazio, who then was able to put her personal touch to find a unique whisky character for each limited edition.
