Mackmyra Gruvguld (Gold from the mine) has been aged in small casks of 30, 100 and 128 litres, in the mine of Bodås, 50 metres below ground. This whisky is a tribute to our famous 30-litre casks that have been with us since the start, and more than half of the finished result was aged in these casks made up of different oak types and finishes.
The new make that was aged, is mainly made from our elegant recipe, with an exception of a few smoky or peated recipe filled casks that gives Gruvguld a hint of spiciness.
Included in the wide variety of casks used, there are also some that previously stored Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry to add a gentle fruitiness. The casks included in Gruvguld have been stored between five and sixteen years.
Nose: Varied notes of different whiskies with soft notes of blackcurrant, anise, ginger and tobacco leaves.
Taste: There is a spicy berry fruitiness of blackcurrant, caramelized pear and grapefruit. After a few seconds in the mouth a soft spicy oak taste infused with light tar tones and tobacco leaves starts to filter through. The texture has a certain oiliness to it.Aftertaste: Slight oiliness, with a spicy finish infused with berry undertones and a slight dryness to it
The Seasonal Collection Story
In the Seasonal Whisky collection, we create editions with innovative and seasonal expressions, and since the winter of 2013, we have launched two limited editions per year. Some examples of popular finish storage throughout the year include barrels that have previously carried mulled wine, Amarone, cloudberry wine, rum, cherry wine and birch wine.The series also includes close collaborations with beverage producers such as Masi, Plantation Rum and Christian Drouin.
Lightly smoked, very pleasant easy-drinking whisky.
