Swedish distillery Mackmyra teamed up with Italian winery Masi to finish its latest whisky expression in Masi Costasera Amarone casks. The whisky was first matured in Sweden in the traditional Mackmyra casks, before some spent a further six months in Masi’s 600-litre oak barrels.

The 46.1% abv single malt is described on the palate as having “raisins, dried pears, ginger and vanilla” flavours. The aroma has notes of grape, herbs and a “slightly mineral tone”.

Raffaele Boscaini, of Masi Technical Group, added: “It is fascinating to see how our casks, where for a long period Masi Costasera has been aged, have transferred their character and specific aromas from our unique wine to another unique product.”
