Mackmyra Collaborates With Plantation For Rum-Casked Whisky

Swedish distiller Mackmyra has collaborated with Barbados-based Plantation Rum to launch Moment Karibien single malt whisky.

Moment Karibien was distilled at Mackmyra and aged in their underground Bodås mine warehouse. Various casks aged between eight and 12 years old were used to mature the whisky and approximately 75% of the liquid was aged in casks previously used to mature Plantation’s Barbados and Jamaican rums. Additionally, the liquid contains small amounts of whisky aged in barrels that previously contained Oloroso sherry and cherry wine.

Moment Karibien was then bottled at 44.4% alcohol by volume [88.8 proof] and not surprisingly, is said to contain notes of fruit, spicy and vanilla.

Only 4,127 bottles of Moment Karibien are being made available.
