This is the first time we present a seasonal whisky with Amarone cask finishing. Using the complex and unique flavours of this wine gives this latest edition a soft and spicy character that is suited to autumn and winter.
Skördetid is an elegant Swedish single malt whisky partially matured in Italian Amarone casks, Masi Costasera Amarone, but which has kept the original character of Mackmyra’s whisky casks. The whisky was initially matured in the Bodås mine in Sweden in our Mackmyra casks, and to finish the whisky, a high proportion spent a final six months in the Masi 600 litres Oak cask.
