About this seasonal single malt

Mackmyra Stjärnrök (Star Smoke) is a Swedish single malt whisky created with cold, dark months in mind. For this edition, Mackmyra began with their handmade smoky Rök recipe. They then matured this in oloroso, ex-bourbon and American oak casks for body, complexity and sweetness. To balance the smoke and the deep, dark notes from the oloroso casks, they added older ex-bourbon casks. These contained their unsmoked elegant recipe, contributing vibrant aromas of citrus and vanilla. The whisky is then brought together by the addition of spicy Swedish oak casks saturated with cloudberry wine. This brings a deliciously warming finish. Stjärnrök is perfect to pair with a winter charcuterie of ripe figs, walnuts and strong, hard cheeses.

    What you need to know about taxes

    All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.

    UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.

    We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.

    For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
