About Mackmyra 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, limited edition, release of Svensk Rök, Mackmyra have aged their smoky recipe exclusively in new casks of American oak. This gives the whisky prominent notes of vanilla and herbs – a welcome contrast to the bold notes of peat, juniper and tar.
