Moment Prestige is an eleven year-old whisky aged in casks of French oak that previously held wine from the artisinal Champagne producer Philipponnat. When making Champagne, Philipponnat only uses the finest grapes, mainly from Premier and Grand cru vineyards, and then let parts of the wine age on oak casks.These casks bring crisp notes of white wine, grapefruit, bread and toasted oak to the whisky. The youngest part of the whisky has been aged between the years 2006 - 2017, and the oldest part, wich makes up 40% of the total volume, was aged between the years 2004 - 2017.
Nose: Fruity, vinous notes and a herbal spici ness together with vanilla, toasted oak, pear fudge, warm grapes, white pepper, anise, ginger and cardemom.
Taste: Oak and prominent notes of white grapes and grapefruit. Spicy and herbal notes of eucalyptus, anise and vanilla. The texture is medium thick.
Aftertaste: The aftertaste is long with tangible vinous notes of champage that’s moving towards dry notes of oak.
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. Here, Mackmyra's most special casks and recipes come into their own. Each edition has a very limited amount of bottles that are released and you can expect at least one new Moment edition per year.
