Forever captured by artists and photographers alike, the magic of the golden hour over the French countryside is the inspiration for Mackmyra Limousin. A fruity, playful, gently-balanced Swedish single malt whisky, predominantly seasoned with French Oak casks that previously held Cognac from sun-kissed grapes.
This has a fruity aromas with notes of sweet and citrus fruits. Distinct vanilla with dried fruit, prune and orange zest. It is round on the palate with vanilla caramel, dried fruit, sweet almond and dark chocolate. A light spiciness from the oak, with light sour grape tones, ginger and matured pear. The finish has sun-ripened grapes with oak notes and soft pear caramel
The flavours of the region are essential for this whisky and are highlighted by the use of French Limousin Oak cask that previously held Cognac from renowned Cognac House Ferrand. To emphasise the fruitiness, they complemented the recipe with older Oloroso casks, as well as casks saturated with berry wine (cherry and forest raspberry wine) to add intrigue, complexity, and a touch of freshness.
Limousin pairs perfectly with cold-cut charcuterie or a dark chocolate fondant with caramelised orange.
