Mackmyra Svensk Rök Bottling Note

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.

Mackmyra Svensk Rök (Swedish Smoke) Reviews

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.

Rich juniper smoke

Amazing peated whisky, something different. Smooth and balanced smoky whisky.

2nd December 2017

Needs water

With a drop of water its ok but far from a peat & smoke islay whisky

2nd December 2017

Very well balanced

Very nice whisky with a nice amout of peat that does not take over too much of the other flavours

22nd November 2017

Something different

Amazing whisky, unique aromas and nice balanced palate

Peaty yet smooth & delicate

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.

27th February 2016


Its rubbish.The flavours just dies out in seconds

Lovely. Delicate floral taste

Andrew Morrison - Skeptical but then very satisfied

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!

Surprising find & whisky

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..

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.

Wood Smoke and Aniseed

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!
