A smooth and elegant tribute to Swedish Autumn
One of Mackmyra’s collaborations with Swedish winemaker, Grythyttan, the Jacktlycka (Happy Hunting) is a tribute to the crisp autumns in Sweden and the treasures that can be found in the Swedish forests. As the days become shorter, the ancient woodland trails become overabundant with all manner of berries.
Nosing this seasonal whisky reveals spicy, warm, fruity tones and notes of herbs. Soft vanilla oak with aromas of anise, ginger, raisins, pear caramel and vanilla follow.
On the palate soft fruity and spicy with berries and dried fruit lead. Pear, raisins, ginger and vanilla follow in perfect balance. The texture is creamy and medium bodied with an incredible smooth finish.
The flavours of berry, fruit, spice and oak linger in the mouth with warm notes of raisins to leave very little to be desired.
The distillery is home to some of the purest water in the world of spirits, filtered to near perfection since the Ice Age. Located next to this incredible water source, the Mackmyra distillery also prides itself in using primarily new Swedish oak barrels.
They bring an incredible passion and understanding of classic whisky production techniques to the table whilst operating one of the most exciting modern distilleries in the world. The Mackmyra distillers use 100% Swedish ingredients without additives while continuing the pursuit of low environmental impact.
