The Golden Hour - Capture The Moment

When the sun is just above the horizon and the sunbeams are travelling low, a magical light appears that only mother nature can deliver. Time stops and you don’t think about bills, social media or what to eat for dinner – You are absolutely present and at the same time you almost forget that you exist. You are a small piece of the puzzle in a perfect moment.

Forever captured by artists and photographers alike, the magic of the golden hour over the French countryside is the inspiration for Mackmyra Limousin. A fruity, playful, gently-balanced Swedish single malt whisky, predominantly seasoned with French Oak casks that previously held Cognac from sun-kissed grapes.

Nose: Fruity, with notes of sweet and citrus fruits. Distinct vanilla with dried fruit, prune and orange zest.

Taste: Round taste with vanilla caramel, dried fruit, sweet almond and dark chocolate. A light spiciness from the oak, with light sour grape tones, ginger and matured pear.

Aftertaste: Vinous, sun-ripened grapes with oak notes and soft pear caramel.

French Connection

The flavours of the region are essential for this whisky and are highlighted by the use of French Limousin Oak cask that previously held Cognac from renowned Cognac House Ferrand. To emphasise the fruitiness, we complemented the recipe with older Oloroso casks, as well as casks saturated with berry wine (cherry and forest raspberry wine) to add intrigue, complexity, and a touch of freshness.
Limousin pairs perfectly with cold-cut charcuterie or a dark chocolate fondant with caramelised orange

A lap of luxury for our whisky

The Limousin district in the heart of France is well-known for its superior oak forest and the French Oak casks made with Limousin wood are some of the best in the world for seasoning spirits. In collaboration with our friends at Maison Ferrand, we focused this bottling on the excellent ex-Ferrand Cognac casks and we are thrilled to present one of our most luxurious whiskies to date.

Absolut gelungener Tropfen

Ein wirklich fabelhafter Whisky, rund und weich im Geschmack, tolles Aroma und milde Schärfe. Passt super an warmen Abenden! Beide Daumen hoch!

Wieder ein toller Whisky mit einem wunderbaren Aroma

Nice full flavour whisky. Smooth, not to sharp and easily drinkable. A dangerous combination. The finish is quite long and aromatic. The aroma is that of fine malts, some fruity notes of peach in the distance and some elegant oaky notes from the barrel and some nice complementing cognac aromas. All in all, a very good whisky that comes in a bottle that is to small (cause it’s gonna finish quickly).

A smooth, rich yet balanced whisky offering great value for money and in good company, great memories (unless you drink the whole bottle, you'll probably have no memory)

Very nice rich dram

The cognac flavour is definitely present is this well balanced whiskey. Full bodied flavour and a lingering aftertaste.
This bottle will not last long ...before the bottom shows, and a refill is in order

Fantastic Whisky

a lifelong whisky fan I discovered Mackmyra by accident as a substitute in an online shopping order.
it has become my house whisky, the Limousin is a fantastic addition to the range. as good as any whisky at the price point.

The Classic Cask Finish - Round, soft with pleasing notes of vanilla, pear, apple, citrus caramel and honey.
