The recipe basis for Sweden Rock 2016 Rökt honung or Smoked honey, is based on a smoky single malt whisky that is seasoned with honey, ginger and citrus.
The result is a powerful and at the same time rounded single malt whisky with great smokiness and a honey sweetness. There are no compromises in taste or quality of this limited whisky release.
'I would describe the taste as a smoky adult candy for whiskey fans.' - Angela D'Orazio, Master Blender Mackmyra.
Nose: Spicy, oily and peaty with light juniper wrapped in soft honey tones, with herbs and spices of ginger, citrus and anise.
Taste: Oily, spicy and oak with honey, demerara sugar, bourbon vanilla, light nuttiness and citrus. Spicy ginger, lemon peel and some light malty beer tones.
Summary: Long aftertaste with sweet spicy honey tones, light nuttiness and a peaty smokiness.
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.
