    N: Very unusual nose that’s based around a very delicate yet dominant beery/yeasty wort. Four years in a first fill [bourbon] cask gives this malt this a huge nose. It opens up to reveals itself as a fairly balanced, spiced affair with heather=peat coming through. Its rather salty too, a little like like a young coastal Islay, but actually more an Ardmore from the Eastern Highlands.
    T: Very boozy on the palate that includes an equal oaky~maltiness, cloves, junipers and a herbal depth with a burnt/smokey nature. Its very ’toasty’ with some roughness, becoming rather harsh after a short while just before the turn into the home straight.
    F: Not much, but a more pleasing lingering at least. The barley base is intact, and like a chocolate spirit towards the end. Rather tasty despite not being that accomplished. Bats above its station in this respect.
    C: Another idiosyncratic malt from Mackmyra, like the Brukswhisky WB - but this one doesn’t exactly work for me. More interesting than good.  Dave Broom scores it a mere 67.

    Although young, this Mackmyra Preludium 06 seemed, at least on the nose, to present rather interesting qualities. Unfortunately, this is spoiling in the mouth, with very little aromatic power.
    • Nose
      from the start, we are struck by the vegetal notes brought by the young age of this whisky. With the opening, a pleasant fragrance emerges from the glass, with eucalyptus, licorice, anise, lemon, grapefruit, vanilla, mint. A very fresh, springy nose, leaving a touch of smoke from time to time.
    • Taste
      unfortunately, it does not seem up to the nose ... This could be thought of a spirit based on agave. It's light despite the 50.5% ... Fortunately, this Preludium 06 has not been reduced. There are notes of lime, cereals, hazelnuts, fresh mint, and smoke, but there is very little aromatic power.
    • Finish
      it's not very intense. The aromas disappear too quickly. There remains a small grain dryness in the mouth.

    "Producer`s notes: Preludium:06 - Fresh Swedish Smoke is a limited

    edition of young, Swedish malt whisky with a gentle hint of bourbon cask

    and fresh, Swedish smokiness. Preludium:06 was composed by Distillery

    Visitor Manager Barbro Hyllengren, who has been with us since the very

    beginning.The content of Preludium:06 is a blend of our smoky and elegant recipe,

    stored for four years in old bourbon casks of first-fill quality. The

    casks have matured in our warehouses on Fjäderholmarna and in the Bodas

    mine. This base flavour is then augmented with whisky that has been

    stored in new, 100-litre American oak casks and bourbon casks, as well

    as some selected casks from our previous pilot production.For optimal flavour, the alcohol strength has been adjusted to 50.5% using distillery water from the Valbo Ridge."
