Swedish Single Malt Whisky
Our whiskey club is a great and economical way for us to try a much larger variety than we would as individuals. As well as providing an excuse for us to get together and drink, one of our favorite past times. A couple of the guys really enjoy finding unusual, out of the “norm” bottles for us to try- which is greatly appreciated. Which is how we got to Sweden’s MACKMYRA SVENSK ROK . Svensk Rök is a peated expression from Sweden’s Mackmyra. With juniper added to the kiln, this is spicy, smoky and made exclusively using Swedish ingredients.

Everyone should master a few of the classic cocktails. Mixing a drink is a skill we are losing and there is no reason you shouldn’t enjoy a well made drink at the end of your work day. So let’s set you up to make an old fashioned, whiskey sour, and rob roy/manhattan a few of my favorite classic whiskey drinks.
We had published an article or two on “terroir.” It’s a reference to location (here is a link to an article titled “Whiskey, Location, Location, Location”). To explain, it is about the idea that the place where a liquor (be it wine, tequila or whiskey) is made and from where its ingredients are sourced, are important. They matter.
