Mackmyra Svensk Rök

One of the fine offerings from Swedish distillery Mackmyra. This is their smoky, peaty expression, hence the name Svensk Rök, which means Swedish Smoke. It's unequivocally fragrant and rich, with hints of vanilla, oak and even juniper smoke wafting in.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Earthy peat, warm smoke, vanilla fudge and a whisper of citrus.

Palate There's that bright juniper note! Sweet soot, and just a little more vanilla to give it a subtle sweet centre.

Finish Plenty of oak and smoke last on the finish.

Overall Ooh yes, fans of Islay whisky will want to have a taste of this unique whisky.

Great taste of swedish forests, juniper smoke and pear.
Amazing whisky, but very different than your usual peaty scotch offerings. This is more like juniper bonfire than peat. A little bit of licorice, deep oak and touch of pear. Extremely tasty, well made and unique - therefore misunderstood by many. If you like Kilchoman, this is going to be right up you alley.

Give it time and you will discover more....
I think that the negative reviews may be based on the initial arrival and made in haste.. but you need to give this some time and keep coming back to it. Initially the smoke seems sooty and the taste has little depth, but given time and a few more sips it becomes a bit more complex. It's like walking into a delicatessen with hanging black pepper and herb-covered salami, with fruity cheeses in the background! It's not pretending to be a peaty Islay. Well done the Swedes!

no peat? No problem. Smoked with juniper wood
love the smoke on this bright delight of a whisky. Full flavoured with juniper smoke, there's nothing lacking across the palate. Only beaten for me by is springtime pal Appelblom. Can't wait to see what Mackmyra do next

Not too bad. After all.
I was. Quite disappointed. At firts. As it's far from what you'll expect. especially. Considering it's name!! Which is completely miss leading. It's not te be compared. To any islay type of whisky in my opinion. But it's not a bad whisky. I put it instantly away. At my first tasting. Not to be touched for two weeks. After which I decided to give it another try. I also added a drop of water. This time As I know. That it can smooth out the taste. Especially when it's a whisky with a 46% or higher alcohol percentage any true experienced whisky drinker. Knows that. My second opinion wasn't too bad. But it's definitely. More floral and sweet. And in no way a peaty islay comparative. I personally wouldn't buy it again. Because I like a real peaty islay way too much! And if you would like to try something different? I'll recommend. Santiss malt peated cask strength Or smokey old bear from Switzerland.

I was looking forward to this one but found it way to unbalanced and blunt. I actually agree with some comments that the smoke tastes and smells artificial. Sorry Sweden.

Not good
I am very sorry but.....
Someone gave a bottle of your whiskey to my mother, who was born in Sweden in 1924. In 1927 she came to america.
Now being 94 and an avid whiskey drinker, I would like to let you know that everyone here in America that has tasted your Mackmyra Whiskey thinks it is 'Nasty' 'Awful" "Disgusting" . Maybe we got a bad bottle but. I don't like your Swedish Whiskey. Irish Whiskey can also be many times better than Kentucky whiskey.

Artificial smoke taste and a lingering aftertaste of bonfire. Much better offerings of smoked whiskey out there. Avoid.
