For Mackmyra and Plantation, it was a bit like love at first sight when we started our first Barrel Swap for the Single Cask 2017 collection. Alexandre Gabriel went to Mackmyra Whisky Village near Gävle, in Sweden. There he found a unique place and a new dimension to whisky: a cellar 50 metres below ground in the middle of the forest and a distillery built on the principle of gravity.
Along with Angela D’Orazio, the Maison’s nose and master blender, Alexandre chose the 30-litre Mackmyra Reserve with toasting char. It’s a new perspective for this Single Cask, a shrewd balance between the smokiness of a Scandinavian single malt and exotic richness.
