  1. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A very smooth, rounded whisky, soft, drinkable, shallow, but quite varied in derivatives, from the minuses there are cardboard notes and dust, although it must be admitted that they are quite harmoniously blended into the overall picture, in general, very well done by a no-brainer.
    • Nose
      Restrained, moist, the first nose is honey-intoxicated; dry boards, wood dust, cardboard, coated tablets, gypsum, mineral notes, mixed shades, raisins, cocoa, sweet pastry tones, baklava, chocolate-nut bar.
    • Taste
      Soft, rich, spicy wood, cardboard, sweet creamy caramel shades, fondant, boiled condensed milk, milk chocolate, cocoa.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, delicate oak, cappuccino, some dried fruits, raisins, sweet creamy tones, cardboard, mixed notes.

  5. C_a_r_s_t_e_n scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      fruity apple, a little vinegar, slight wood influence, sweet Haribo apple rings, lemon washing-up liquid, very pleasant
    • Taste
      very light and thin, some spicy oak and sharpness, unripe peach, minimal sweetness
    • Finish
      very short, wood sharpness again
      That was it already.

  6. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    typical Mackmyra, barrel (or pre-allocation) beats spirit, well done, easy to drink, with exotic bonus 45-50 € I think OK, the collector can add 5 € for the Scorpions
    • Nose
      gentle, dry, subtly tart and fruity (berries?), somewhat nutty
    • Taste
      medium-intense dark berries, cherry, cocoa
    • Finish
      long, warm, spicy, cocoa

  7. GJR scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      82 82
      Restraint, gentle fruit and sweetness. Mellow fruitiness. Cherry/raspberry sweetness at the background.
    • Taste
      75 75
      Blend. Suffering from a way too low abv.
    • Finish
      78 78
      Despite the too low abv is the finish not too watery. Quite some bitterness and darker fruittones.

  9. maltaholic scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Fruity, later spicy.
    It's perfectly alright.
    Aromatic in the nose,
    in the mouth he lets up.

  10. svenske2015 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Very fresh and youthful malt that comes with its 40% quite thin (But would you really want to have it stronger?). The cherry wine finish is clearly noticeable. Does not hurt, but remains only because of the use of the "German ex-sweet cherry casks" (Great, what we drink in Germany so everything) and the reference to the Scorpions in the short-term memory. For 60 EUR so rather something for the aperitif, the Scorpions / Mackmyra fanboys / girls or the windscreen washer.
    Oh, can somebody answer the question, why the hard rockers always bring out schnapps with a slack 40%?
