Ambassador's Selection is an online exclusive, single-cask releases from Mackmyra. Personally chosen by one of the Brand Ambassadors, these whiskies showcase the expressions of 30 litre Reserve Cask Program. This cask uses the Rök recipe; our smoky new make created only at Mackmyra. This whisky was matured in a first-fill 30L oloroso cask for a little over five and half years at Mackmyra's Bodås Mine warehouse. Jon, Brand Ambassador UK “An easy choice for me, Rök recipe in an Oloroso whisky cask. I love how deceptive the whisky is! The light straw colour makes you anticipate some light and gentle, then you get all the rich fruit and smoke notes. It's a really pleasurable creamy long dram for those who like the more dramatic whiskies. This may be 46.2%, but it's still cask strength so it's definitely worth adding a drop of water to wake it up too." Notes according to Mackmyra: Nose: Butterscotch, raisin, peach and ginger. With time, fresh green apples come through with ripe pear and deeper peach notes and even more sweetness. Taste: Very warming and spicy. Lots of stewed fruits with the peach and pear. The smoke has married well in the cask to create a final wisp that lingers pleasantly afterwards. Overall: The dram has a luscious creamy mouthfeel and the taste just goes on and on. Neither the smoke nor the cask dominate, but a gorgeous combination of the two.
