Sweden’s Mackmyra Distillery recently introduced its Mackmyra Muddus, a limited small batch whisky finished in casks that previously held wild raspberry wine and cloudberry wine.
A statement from the Scandinavian whisky maker notes that for this series, only 3,017 bottles were made.
“This whisky is inspired by and named after the national park of the same name,” said Lii Johnson, Mackmyra’s blender. “An untouched place where cloudberries and wild raspberries grow side by side in the wild. We thought that if we could encapsulate some of the uniqueness and beauty of Muddus in a bottle, we would have a very exciting whisky.”
The distiller’s notes show this whisky to have floral aromas with spicy citrus notes. The longer the whisky is allowed to air, the more vanilla and caramel emerge, along with subtle notes of cloudberry and raspberry jam.
The taste has exotic spice flavors and that of sweet berries, complemented by caramel and vanilla. The finish is long and balanced, with spicy heat along with cloudberry and spicy yuzu.
Mackmyra Muddus clocks in at 43.7% ABV and has a suggested retail price of 82.99€. It will be available in the European market starting April 25th.
