Mackmyra describe themselves as “Adventurers in Whisky” and the diversity of their range and barrel regimes are a testimony to their claim. While they offer malts matured in traditional x Bourbon and Sherry casks, finishes range from Sauternes barrels through to casks which have previously held traditional fruit and berry wines, as well as indigenous Swedish oak (the latter reportedly contributes prominent spice). Casks of 30 and 100 litres are typical. The smaller vessels create an intense maturation with high oak-to-liquid ratios. All the whiskies are aged at a constant temperature, 50 meters deep underground in an old mine.

Part of the "Special Series" , 08 is a spicy malt whisky with a floral and fruity character, created from a mix of bourbon casks, sherry casks and casks made of new Swedish and American oak before being finally finished in French Sauternes casks. This edition is labelled "Handplockat", or "hand picked", in honour of the winemakers who carefully chose the grapes to make the Sauternes. One only to sell.
