  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    If you are feeling the winter blues, fed up with life - simply a little down in the dumps - DON'T drink this - it'll push you over the edge. To misquote someone from Star Trek: "it's booze Jim, but not as we know it".
    • Nose
      74 74
      A little flat on the nose - something is trying to come forth, perhaps an exhausted cask (hints of dry sack)
    • Taste
      74 74
      Some spice, a little heat, a little of flat.
    • Finish
      73 73
      Lingers (but then so does the smell of a dead horse so not sure if that's a good thing).

    Terribly boring and uninteresting whiskey.
    N: 18 T: 18 F: 17 B: 17
    • Nose
      Braga and chemical juice from green apples. And I immediately remembered the modern Irish style, something in the spirit of Spade & Bushels 05-yo
    • Taste
      The first thing that rushes is the all-consuming bitterness in the dominant, the sweetness of 5 out of 10, boring and monotonous, did not catch any notes at all.
      Chemical juice and light perfumery, nevertheless, are felt in the second sip.
    • Finish
      Bitterness and apple sweetness, almost no tannins

    Mackmyra Brukswhiskey, 41.4% alc. Original bottling. Maturation: Bourbon barrels, sherry barrels, Swedish oak. Type: single malt whiskey

    Nose: restrained and very slightly smoky, a little creamy first impression. Unripe pear, a little tangerine and a little crème brulée. The smoke looks fresh and smells of charcoal, followed by banana mash, fennel and a hint of aniseed.

    Palate: stronger, slightly spicy. I notice rye bread and blood orange first, the smoke is barely noticeable. Instead, clearly caramel candies and some fudge, and again the banana together with pepper and ginger.

    Finish: Medium long, oily and flattering. The emphasis here is once again on slightly bitter citrus fruits, caramel and oak wood.

    Conclusion: I like the mixture of freshness, smoke and slightly fruity / spicy aromas. The Brukswhisky is very elegant and balanced. 83/100 points (2021)

  6. vlad78 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The influence of bourbon barrel, of course, seemed higher than the rest. In general, it is quite a good drink.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, duchess, yellow and green apples.
    • Taste
      Sweet, fruity, light.
    • Finish
      Sweet, floral and fruity.

  9. man2392 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Bubblegum, banana and urine
    Palate: bananas and fizzy cola bottles
    Finish: fizzy

    I have fond memories of this whisky from 2016 and generally enjoy most of their releases, not this one though. Too left field to me and not balanced

    • Nose
      72 72
      Ashy, citrus-y, quite dull
    • Taste
      77 77
      Bitter, on citrus (grapefruit), spices (ginger, pepper, even chili pepper). Oily texture.
    • Finish
      74 74
      Short on citrus and pepper
