  1. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    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.

    An absolute delight in the run up and over the Christmas period. Full of seasonal spices. Great.

  4. Lord.Dominic scored this whisky 84 points Newbie

    Special whisky that was stored in a mulled wine barrel.

  5. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    albeit in terms of taste far from the prevailing opinion - I find it tasty and could approve 45-50 €
    • Nose
      I am confused: Primarily and clearly strong herbal-spicy, of sweetness and fruit, as you can read in the official description and many notes, I find almost nothing
    • Taste
      Herbal and spicy again, then green, pine needles, slightly resinous, Ricola
    • Finish
      long, warm, bitter herbs, cough syrup

  6. thijs100 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    It's a strange sensation, but I kind of love it.
    • Nose
      Sweet and spicy, with pronounced notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, but also soft notes of milk chocolate and charred oak. Throw in a few raisins too, as well as a touch of rose water.
    • Taste
      A strange mix of the sherry cask and mulled wine, that works, surprisingly! There's the blackberries and raisins, as well as fudge, but then also warming spices that are clearly the result of maturation in mulled wine casks. There's a touch of oak spices too, as well as some cigar tobacco. Could've done with a little more viscosity.
    • Finish
      Charred oak, a touch dry.

      sweet fruit, orange, spices; Christmas spices; Clove, star anise, then candied orange zest again
    • Taste
      82 82
      strong spicy; Glühwein Bonbon; sweet; Orange; interesting wood note, somehow different, a little sweet vanilla, then again Christmas spices (star anise, clove), again this mulled wine touch
    • Finish
      86 86
      spicy oak; Cinnamon paired with tobacco (wet tobacco leaves), beautiful spiciness
