For this edition of Moment, the Master Blender got company from the Swedish singer and songwriter Tomas Ledin. During a stroll down in the Bodås mine, they found a couple of casks that previously stored sauternes wine. Both Angela and Tomas found them fantastic and knew instantly that these casks were going to be the Moment Ledin.
Mackmyra Moment is a series of whiskies from their most exclusive casks, handpicked by Master Blender Angela D’Orazio. Each edition comes in a distinguished black carton with a specific colour scheme and a modern bottle design with an engraved metal plaque.
Since the number of casks per bottling are so few, the editions in the Moment series are very limited. The first editions to be released were Moment Medvind and Moment Urberg that where launched on 15 December 2010 in the exclusive range at the Swedish monopoly store Systembolaget.
Since then, several unique Moment editions have been released.
