Mackmyra Bruks Swedish Single Malt Whisky: A Deep Dive into a Nordic Delight

For whisky enthusiasts seeking to explore beyond the traditional Scottish and Irish expressions, the Mackmyra Bruks Swedish Single Malt Whisky offers a unique and rewarding adventure. This core bottling from the pioneering Swedish distillery presents a light and refreshing character, perfect for seasoned drinkers and curious newcomers alike.

Maturation and Cask Influence:

The Mackmyra Brukswhisky undergoes a meticulous maturation process. The foundation lies in primarily first-fill bourbon barrels, which impart classic notes of vanilla, caramel, and hints of spice.  Ex-Sherry casks add a layer of richness, with dried fruits and a touch of nutty complexity.  Uniquely, some of the whisky is matured in Swedish oak casks, a touch that whispers hints of spice and earthiness, reflecting the local terroir. Finally, a small portion of smokier malt is included in the blend, adding a subtle hint of smokiness that rounds out the flavour profile.

Tasting Notes:

  • Nose: The initial aroma is inviting and approachable. Fresh orchard fruits like pears and apples take centre stage, interwoven with hints of vanilla and baking spice derived from the bourbon casks. A subtle smokiness peeks through, adding intrigue without overwhelming the delicate balance. As the whisky opens up, a touch of honey sweetness emerges, alongside a whisper of earthy character from the Swedish oak maturation.
  • Palate: The first sip delivers a light and smooth texture, coating the tongue with a gentle warmth. The flavours echo the nose, with ripe pears and apples at the forefront. Vanilla and caramel notes from the bourbon casks provide a touch of sweetness, while a hint of baking spice adds complexity. The subtle smokiness plays a supporting role, adding a touch of intrigue without overpowering the lighter fruit and spice notes. A touch of earthy minerality, influenced by the Swedish oak maturation, lingers in the background, adding a distinctive character.
  • Finish: The finish is clean and refreshing, with a lingering sweetness of honey and vanilla. The subtle smokiness fades gently, leaving a pleasant warmth that invites another sip.


The Mackmyra Bruks Swedish Single Malt Whisky is a delightful exploration into the world of Swedish whisky.  Light, smooth, and approachable, it offers a complex flavour profile that is both intriguing and satisfying. The interplay of fruit, spice, vanilla, and a touch of smokiness creates a well-balanced and distinctive dram.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Neat:  For the purists, enjoying Mackmyra Brukswhisky neat allows the full complexity of the flavour profile to shine through.  Serve in a traditional whisky tumbler or a tulip glass to allow for proper nosing and appreciation of the aromas.
  • Lightly Chilled: Chilling the whisky slightly can further enhance its refreshing character.  A few minutes in the fridge or a splash of cool water can help to accentuate the fruit notes and create a lighter drinking experience – perfect for warmer days.
  • Highball:  For a long and refreshing drink, the Mackmyra Brukswhisky makes an excellent highball.  Fill a highball glass with ice, add a generous measure of whisky, and top with soda water.  A twist of lemon or orange peel can add a touch of citrus zest.
  • Cocktail Inspiration:  The Mackmyra Brukswhisky's lighter profile makes it a versatile base for cocktails. Experiment with classic recipes like the Whisky Sour or the Penicillin, adjusting the proportions to suit your taste.
