Mackmyra Moment Prestige Single Malt Whisky
Moment Prestige is an eleven year old whisky aged in casks of French oak that previously held wine from the artisinal Champagne producer Philipponnat.
When making Champagne, Philipponnat only uses the finest grapes, mainly from Premier and Grand cru vineyards, and then let parts of the wine age on oak casks. To the whisky, these casks bring crisp notes of white wine, grapefruit, bread and toasted oak.
The nose has fruity, vinous notes and a herbal spiciness together with vanilla, toasted oak, pear fudge, warm grapes, white pepper, anise, ginger and cardamom. On the palate oak and prominent notes of white grapes and grapefruit lead off. Spicy and herbal notes of eucalyptus, anise and vanilla. The texture is medium thick. The aftertaste is long with tangible vinous notes of champagne that’s moving towards dry notes of oak.
