What they say:
In Sweden we have used juniper to season our food for generations. Now you can enjoy the timeless flavor in a golden form. The aroma is slightly smoky and spicy, with a much smokier flavor and peaty juniper notes. Together, the flavors unites in a quite unique Swedish flavor.
Swedish Smoke is the only smoky single malt whisky made on Swedish ingredients only.
The nose is slightly smoky and spicy with aromas of peat, juniper, vanilla, caramel, citrus, pears and raisins. Spicy oak notes such as toasted bread and anise.
Smokier than the nose with smoky, peaty, juniper notes. Dry, oaky aromas found with light tobacco leaves and herbs. A slight saltiness with minerals, anise and green fruits.
Slightly dry and smoky with notes of oak, salt and herbs.
What I say:
Dram #5 from the 2017 #WorldWhiskyDay Worldwide Whiskies tasting set from The Dram Team. Svensk Rok has a smoky character from both peat and juniper wood and has been matured in American oak, Swedish Oak, ex-bourbon and casks saturated with Oloroso to form a uniquely Swedish smoky expression.
light gold (3/20)
Dusty peaty icing sugar, vanilla, machine oil & jelly tots
Vanilla, smoke, ash, a little ozone, earthy and meaty with a dash of lime juice
Dark chocolate, beech-smoked ham, a little pepper and tannin, delicious
A deliciously fragrant and light dram typical of Mackmyra but with elegant wafts of smoke from both peat and wood influence, there was everything about this that I liked!
