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.
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.

Husband ordered this one as a sample as part of a set for me, I would say this is a rather peaty one however I found it much smoother & more palatable than other whiskey's I've tried (such as Talisker, Glen Livet) I usually choose smooth, sweet whiskey like Hibiki Harmony (Japanese) or Auchentoshan but recently introduced to Swedish whiskey, I definitely would purchase a full bottle of this one. Made me think of log cabins & smoky wood burners, relaxing drink!

Not smooth. No smoke taste even label promises that. Strong burning taste.

I tasted a mackmyra whisky a few years ago and didn't like it, or so I thought. A friend had some of the Swedish Smoke and offered me some. I turned him down at first but he insisted. Reluctantly I walked around with the whiskey for almost 20 minutes before I would even taste it but once I did I was really surprised. Wow... This one is really good and I immediately went out and bought a bottle. May even try a few more!

I love peated whisky! This is completely different than what I am used to from Scottish whiskies! This is a lovely earthy smoke with a touch of juniper. Sweet, enticing & very unique! This whisky will be used often and will help me demonstrate the difference between Scottish peat and a smoky whisky! Just beautiful.

Yes please...Lovely sweet bourbon wood and real peatyness. Fine balance between smoke and wood. Not so smoky nose but a good bite in the mouth. Perfect level of smoke. If you like smoky whisky, this is for you. If you don't like smoky whisky, this is for you.
This is a very competent non chill filtered whisky that really gives you the money worth !The nose is a very welcoming sooty log that just has burned out.The intruiging peaty nose (that is worth nosing a long long time),gives away pinecones with juniper and a Swedish fairytale forest from which it once arose.The taste is very smooth and lipsmacking and it gets better.The aftertaste shows hints of some mint(?)and a nice touch of freshly grounded pepper.A whisky for the long loving fans of the peat.
I'm a fan of this Swedish Distillery and always look out for the Mackmyra stand at the UK Whisky shows, and first tried this in October 2013 at the TWE Whisky Show. I was recently been reacquainted with it after a recent trip to Stockholm and thought I'd share my thoughts here.Nose: Sweet with a subtle peat smoke note that gently interrupts the green ferns and gorse bushes. There's some 'mulled wine' spices which seem to bring some berry fruits into play too. Taste: Initially sweet with liquorice and aniseed coming first for me. Slowly spices build with a touch of clove and some heat as a fragrant smoke starts to come through.Finish: Wood smoke lingers with hints of aniseed.Personally, I love it!
