  1. Snerik scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Well, it’s surprisingly good. It’s very sweet, and young, but the youth actually works here (if there’s such a thing?). Given it’s price tag, maybe not the best whisky, but hey, it’s still quite nice. And Swedish!    
    • Nose
      It feels young (not super young), but still quite fresh. This is a very fruity malt, dominated by apples, papaya and some pineapple? And honey, and vanilla! Don't forget the vanilla! Maybe some walnuts in the far back. Here’s not a huge level of complexity rather it’s gentle side is its strength. Reminds me of Greenore, which is a single grain Irish malt. 
    • Taste
      Sweet, a little spirit and here the young comes through. A little nuttiness, and some apples. 
    • Finish
      Fresh, nuty, melons! Medium long, and still on the sweet side. 

  2. Ralph Hiltrup did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    "The third of Mackmyra`s special releases is a combination of the best

    30-litre casks of both the company`s malt recipes. The casks used are

    ex-bourbon, ex-sherry and new Swedish oak, and at only 30 litres each

    they speed up the maturation process immensely. The whisky itself is

    described as spicy, full-bodied and fruity."

    No special about this whisky. But the spicy notes are rather nice.
    • Nose
      Strong nose, little alcohol. Oak, vanilla and toffee.
    • Taste
      Good peppery attack. Lots of oak, nuts and vanilla. And a bad bitter taste.
    • Finish
      Long finish, and it's all about oak now.
