    A small part of the malt was finished in Glögg barrels, you can tell that. The spices are fierce and seem a bit set (they are actually too). The orange is the blast, very intense. Again a special experiment by Mackmyra, but certainly not the best of this distillery. I am disturbed by the penetrating anise / clove aroma, especially in the finish.

    Unfortunately, another disappointment for me after Gruvguld. The nose is very pleasant spicy sweet, which reflects the experiment with the Glögg barrels. Unfortunately, this affects the taste enormously set and "unnatural". For me so far the weakest season.

      Initially a slight fruity note in the form of peach, which becomes more and more acidic with time and mutates towards unripe kiwi. Also bothers me at the beginning of this biting alcohol, which seems a bit intrusive. This luckily disappears over time. Otherwise, it has a very mild nose, almost too mild for my taste. A tiny light touch comes from time to time over

      The taste hardly reflects the nose, unfortunately not in a positive sense. The seasoning of the barrels is very noticeable when you get started, but unfortunately they fade very quickly. In addition, he comes unfortunately very spritig over and brings along with light wood and vanilla notes hardly anything

      short-term, I can not provide further details, since there are none

    Tasting notes also available in french on the whisky blog ;)
    • Nose
      Notes of oranges and apricots with aniseed touch. All this with a nice touch of vanilla (thank you bourbon barrels).
    • Taste
      The same fruits as for the nose and the same aniseed touch, all this with a touch of spices, like cinnamon reminiscent of a Christmas cake. It’s “hot”, vanilled and spicy. Very pleasant.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, on fruits and spices.
