Following a tour at Mackmyra’s main storage in Bodås, Efva Attling has – together with Master Blender, Angela D’Orazio – handpicked some of our finest casks. The 19 casks that caught Efva’s attention were mainly Oloroso, American oak and ex-Bourbon barrels, a majority of which had been saturated with Swedish birch tree sap wine. A request to create more prominent sweetness resulted in the use of a cask which had previously held cherry wine.
The result is a sophisticated and fruity whisky, with soft notes of oak and birch, combined with slight spicy tones of red berries.
The edition is ornamented with a polished silver cork, designed by Efva.
Nose: Fruity, spicy, oaky with berries and notes of flowers, red berries, citrus, chocolate, ginger and pear fudge.
