The first release of Mackmyra whisky, almost 7 years after the company was started. The lines outside Systembolaget were long and all bottles were sold out in a couple of hours. Created with a base of twenty 200-litre first-fill bourbon casks (cask number 57 and upwards) with the unpeated "Elegant" recipe. The american oak comes from Jack Daniel distillery in Tennessee. To spice the whisky, some casks of new Swedish oak was used. Also included in the mix are casks 1-5 and 7 all 30-litre casks from the pilot distillery (1999-2002), just to make it a historic release for all collectors. The whisky also gets character from sherrycask number 20 and the juniper-smoked experimental cask number 21. The majority of casks are three years old, with the exception of the few pilot casks, that are close to six years. In total 9000 bottles were drawn, of which Systembolaget bought 4000 that were distributed to 320 different stores. Notes according to Mackmyra: Nose: Apple, coconut, anise och toffee. Taste: Young, fruity and a fresh acidity.
