Mackmyra Special 05 Description

Mackmyra Happy Hunting is the 5th special edition release from Mackmyra distillery in Sweden. Special 05 has been matured in a combination of different cask types, including some of the best of Mackmyra's 30-litre ex-bourbon, ex-sherry and new Swedish oak casks, before being finished casks that have been saturated with lingonberry wine. The maturation took place in the Bodås mine (50 metres underground!) until the whisky was ready for bottling in 2005 at a strength of 47.2% abv.

Fun fact: 2005 was the year Doddie retired from professional rugby, after an incredible 17-year career in the sport. It also just so happens that 5 is his lucky number!

Each winner of a bottle from Doddie's auction will receive two complimentary Glencairn glasses, branded with the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation logo (pictured on homepage)!

This bottle has been personally donated by Mackmyra UK Brand Ambassador Micky Plummer.

Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognizable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career.

Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.

In November 2017 Doddie and his Trustees launched the registered charity My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. Its aims are simple: to raise funds to aid research into the causes of Motor Neuron Disease and investigate potential cures; to make grants to individuals suffering from MND, to enable them to live as fulfilled a life as possible.
