An Entirely Swedish Single Malt Whisky, Made in a Swedish Way with Swedish Ingredients

Mackmyra Svensk Ek Logo

The flagship Swedish whisky created using 100% Swedish ingredients. Casks coopered from Swedish oak create a more firm and spicy flavour. Svensk Ek is matured in Swedish oak casks giving the whisky a spicy character giving notes of sandalwood, dried ginger, black pepper, roasted oak barrel and herbs to our whisky. 

We are constantly developing our ancient craft to make it even better. One example of our many innovations is to age a great deal of our whisky in smaller barrels thereby extracting more flavour.

Nose: Fruity with citrus, pear, apple and honey. A light oakiness with sweet, lightly toasted bread notes and fresh butter toffee.

Taste: Svensk Ek has a spicy character giving notes of sandalwood, dried ginger, black pepper, roasted oak barrel and herbs to our whisky. Fruity and smooth with citrus, caramel and honey. A light oakiness can be discerned at the end.

Aftertaste: The aftertaste is tuned and balanced with hints of dark chocolate.

Jim Murray, Whisky Bible 2020 - 95/100

Wow…!! Those sugars apparent on the nose need no second invitation. They gush forth like waters from a spring on delivery, a unique blend of ulmo honey, marzipan, grist and muscovado sugars, sweetening and soothing the palate before giving way to a playful spice and the darkest of liquorice.

Solid, clean spirit

A slight rustiness to it. Very good. This opened my mind to the possibilities of your range.

Svensk Ek is a superb single malt whisky, professionally distilled, imaginatively blended and taking a worthy position in the Malt Whisky Hall of Fame. A magnificent tipple, well done!

Scott Jardine - 'The Beach Hut Man'

I have 321 different malt whiskys in my 'collection'. I've tried over 200 of them, ranging from peaty Islays to sweet malty Lowlands. I like different recipes on different occasions. But I always come back to this one, 'Svensk Ek'. It intrigues me, it is deeply sweet and spicy, I could sniff it all day as the nose is incredible. Being a carpenter, maybe it is the woody-ness of the nose? I don't know. It is a mystery and that is why I love it. I like the taste of Arran 10, Bladnoch10, and The English 'Original'. The Mackmyra peaty casks are ok, but Svensk Ek is the one I have fallen in love with. Nuff said! x

I bought this as part

I bought this as part of the explorer pack. It's the first time I've tried Swedish whisky - I'm impressed and they were all interesting, characterful flavour profiles. The Svensk Ek (Swedish Oak) was my personal favourite from the pack (they were all nice).

There was an option to choose recycled, repurposed, and reused packaging. This is a nice touch and more companies should do this. Some of the boxes were slightly squashed (only minor), but nothing wrong with the whisky inside.

Smooth sailing

Really love this showcase malt from Sweden and I think it’s one everyone should give a try. Smooth and distinctive taste, I enjoyed it on International Whisky Day!
