The Moment Edition Story: Down in Bodås mine, thousands of casks are stored which are periodically quality tested by Mackmyra's Master Blender, Angela D'Orazio. During her trips to the mine, she sometimes encounters some casks that stand out from the rest, and these casks deserve to be bottled as they are or in an edition with an extra clear vision. Due to this reason Mackmyra created the exclusive series called Moment.
Moment Körsbärsrök (Cherry Smoke) is a smoky whisky with a peaty spiciness and sweet notes of cherry. The recipe of the whisky is created from a combination of Mackmyra's smoky and unsmoked new make, both distilled at our original Mackmyra Bruk distillery in 2010. The smoky new make was aged in ex-Bourbon casks in the sizes 100 to 200 litres. The complementary unsmoked spirit was aged in ex-Bourbon and American oak casks seasoned with German cherry wine.
The medium-sweet cherry wine is perfect for cask seasoning and gives the whisky fruity, intense notes of cherry.
Here, Mackmyra's most special casks and recipes come into their own. Each edition has a very limited amount bottles that are released and you can expect at least one new Moment edition per year.
