Swedish distiller Mackmyra has launched a limited-edition whisky as part of its 'Moment' series. Taking its name from the Swedish for 'cherry smoke', Moment Körsbärsrök, which is limited to 1,500 bottles, was distilled in 2010-2011.

The recipe is based on a combination of a smoky distillate matured in ex-Bourbon casks, as well as "elegant" distillates matured in casks previously used for cherry wine.

"A mature and smoky whisky such as this, with final maturing in cherry wine casks, is a real 'end-of-the-year' whisky," said Mackmyra master blender Angela D'Orazio. "It is the perfect accompaniment to a Roquefort cheese or a soft, mature Brie at the end of a nice dinner with family and friends in the autumn darkness. It has a nicely distinct smoky character that doesn't dominate the other finely-tuned flavours in the whisky too much."

Last year's Moment release, Moment Karibien, was part-aged in rum casks.

In March, CEO Magnus Dandanell stepped down after 21 years at the helm of Mackmyra, to be replaced by Johan Larsson.
