  1. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Slowly I become a fan of Mackmyra. The variety of barrels used here leads to a clever result, despite the noticeable youth: Amarone, Bourbon, Oloroso, PX-Casks ... all of this creates a multitude of flavors, all of which can be clearly and clearly detected / tasted. Although young, but oh! Well done.
    • Nose
      Baked apples, pears, coconut, marzipan, cherries, brioche, cider, tangerines, grapes, dextrose, beet syrup, some vanilla, the apples turn green, the nose tilts, tobacco leaves, some leather, grass, licorice, yellow plums, freshly bent branches, tree sap
    • Taste
      sweet, oily, then spicy, pepper, tangerine, then tangerine peel, kumquat, syrup, coconut, almond paste, marzipan, tobacco leaf, leather, green apple, quince, a hint of cinnamon, pear, again the yellow plum, then a wave of lemon abrasion
    • Finish
      syrupy, still enormously spicy, lemon abrasion, kumquat, leather, vanilla, coconut ... a reverberation like from rum ... the oak rears up again, bitter-sweet, the malt remains in the mouth for a relatively long time, then dries quickly, paradoxically, salivation begins again and blackcurrant and cherry emerge from nowhere ...

    When I opened this bottle in spring the whisky was very harsh and eau-de-vie like. Six months later I must say that it became much more pleasant. It is sweeter on the nose with frangipan and marzipan notes, and you can even smell the wine influence.

    Colour: gold with a slight orange hue
    Thick, quick legs.

    This whisky is quite balanced, being in the middle of malty, fruity and spicy. It's rather decent in it's profile, not a blockbuster that tries to conquer you. Enjoy it whilst sitting in a relaxed chair, reading a book, listening to music or chatting with good company. 21 p.

      In the nose, the refined malty character of the Mackmyra distillate shows: cereal, porridge, and summer fruit. The casks have added vanilla sponge cake, toasted coconut and various red fruits (raspberry, strawberry). It's all refined and pleasant. 21 p.

      This isn't a blockbuster, but it has sufficient weight. It holds the middle between malty, fruity and spicy and it comes quite close to the sweet spot. It's certainly bready (buns from the oven, pastry), with ample spice (cinnamon, sweet ginger) and delicately fruity (peach, raspberry, blueberry). The wood still contributes with vanilla and coconut. 22 p.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Moderately long, on polished wood, muesli, strawberry cheese cake and vanilla beans. 21 p.

    It was great to discover swedish whisky with this Mackmyra Skördetid! No doubt that I will try some other bottlings from this distillery, with hope they’re all so pleasant. If their other seasonal whiskys are like this one, it promises some fun.

    • Nose
      Very nice, very fresh, very smooth, with fruits and vanilla. First of all, aromas of pears and grapes, followed by some notes of spices. Aromas of cognac persist mainly on the length…
    • Taste
      Here again, something fruity and fresh on the palate, with strong notes of spices, this aspect makes me immediately think of Glenmorangie Nectar d’Or (and that’s a good memory). But the fruity notes are of a different nature, more on citrus with grapefruit. Some peppery notes. All of this with a nice balance.
    • Finish
      Long and warm with dried fruits and spices.

    Nice discovery that this Mackmyra Skördetid! No doubt that I will try to other bottlenecks of this distillery so much that it seemed to me pleasant. If their other seasonal whiskys are as good, it promises more fun.

      Here again we are entitled to something fresh and fresh on the palate, with strong notes of spices, this aspect makes me immediately think of Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or (and it is rather a good memory). But the fruity notes are of a different nature, more of citrus with grapefruit. Some peppery notes. All with a nice balance.
    • Finish
      Long and hot on dried fruits and spices.

  10. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This is quite an amazing whisky. To create such a good dram from such a mix of casks is quite a feat. I would not mind finding this under my Christmas tree this year. Around 80 EUR. 
    • Nose
      The nose is very sweet and reminds me at first of a mix of rum and cognac! Mostly rum, actually. Marzipan, coconut, baked apples, but also cider apples, nuts and cherries. Different, but very pleasant.
    • Taste
      The mouthfeel is just fine. The arrival is very spicy, but immediately also very, very sweet. More than on the nose, I am again reminded of rum. A bit weird, but very nice. Midpalate some citrusfruit kicks in with a vengeance with blood oranges and grapefruit in the lead. The spices fade a little to offer up more sweetness still. 
    • Finish
      The finish is very long and warm and somehow reminds me of Christmas.
