Svensk Rök Amerikansk Ek

The flavour of the smoke in Svensk Rök (Swedish smoke) is inspired by the old tradition of seasoning and preserving food by infusing it with juniper smoke.

In this second and limited edition of Svensk Rök, we have aged our smoky recipe exclusively in virgin American oak. This gives the whisky prominent notes of vanilla and herbs – A welcome contrast to the bold notes of peat, juniper and tar.

Nose: Smoke, spiciness, oak, fruits and herbs. Notes of peat, juniper, toasted oak and vanilla followed by a smoky and spicy aroma with saltiness, minerals, tobacco leaves, light tariness. Arrak treats, pear fudge, ginger and vanilla.

Taste: Peat, juniper, salt, definitively more smoky than what the nose is implying. A pleasant oaky spiciness with vanilla, toasted oak, pickled figs and pear fudge. The texture is medium-thick with oaky chewy notes.

Aftertaste: Spicy, smoky and oaky with notes of tar, tobacco leaves, bright notes of pickled figs and pear fudge.

New American oak.

Our Swedish Smoke Recipe

Most distilleries around the world buy in smoked malted barley from other countries and producers to be able to create smoky varieties of their whisky.

We do things a little differently at Mackmyra and decided at an early stage that we wanted to smoke the malt ourselves, an exciting process that takes place in our malt house and smoking chamber in the Whisky Village.

Here, right next to the distillery, the journey begins from an elegant whisky to a smoky one – a process that takes a couple of pleasant-smelling days.

Amazing smoky whisky

Love this whisky. Think it's not being made now, so torn between keeping it and just enjoying it while I can. Will probably do the latter and just enjoy it!
