Moment Ledin is a special whisky created by our Master Blender Angela D'Orazio together with the popular artist Tomas Ledin, who is also a great whisky connoisseur.
In the autumn of 2016, Tomas and Angela spent a day together in the Bodås warehouse, 50 meters underground, where they tried many different barrels. Tomas took a liking to the Sauterne wine barrel and the result was just as they both hoped an elegant whiskey that is both soft oaky and spicy.
- It was a very fun experience to be able to participate in the selection of barrels and participate in the production process. The whisky is just in my taste, incredibly good, soft and flavorful. Of course, I am very proud of the results and that together with the country's leading distillery I am behind a Swedish single malt in the Moment series , says Tomas Ledin.
Mackmyra Moment Ledin is a very limited edition of an elegant Swedish malt whisky stored in bourbon barrels for four and then finalized for five years on French oak barrels containing Sauterne wine. The scent is rich, fruity and spicy with an oaky and spicy flavor with notes of ginger, coconut, vanilla, orange peel and pear.
- We had a lot of fun when we tested all the different barrels. I'm glad Tomas fell for the Sauternes wine barrel. Moment Ledin is crazy good with its soft fruity, spicy tones and soft flavors of fruit and buttery caramel. It is a perfect summer whiskey and I know it will be appreciated, concludes Angela D'Orazio, Master Blender at Mackmyra.
