Whisky Reviews for Mackmyra Brukswhisky
25 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 78.61 points
Cereal, white wine, a slight mouldy note, Viks vaporub, menthol notes
With water - less menthol and the mouldy note dissipates. The white wine notes are still present though.
Lots of wood spice, bitter, astringent and tastes very young like new make spirit. Some salt
With water - less bitter, a mild cereal sweetness develops
Medium/long, wood spice, very bitter
With water - much more pleasant, less bitter and the wood spice has a better balance.
Citrus, pear, barley malt
light caramel, anise, spices, oak
Short and fresh
Nothing special Fruity and Spicy. There are far better Mackmyras
- Nose: New spirit. Sherry. Cinnamon apples. Soft fruit. A hint of smoke.
Taste: Not much. Some smoke and dry oak wood.
Finish: Short. Light with a faint sour taste. a bit oily.
Conclusion. Not a bad sipping whisky. It doesn't benefit from a drop of water. I quite liked it and would probably buy another bottle.
Bright fruits ... slightly malty ... fresh (possibly menthol or in the anise direction). A pleasant sweetness lies above everything.
Sweet with a little spice .... maybe there is something toasted (sesame maybe).
Now you can taste the young age.
But everything in the frame
Means with a nice mild
- Mackmyra Brukswhisky @41.4%
So gentle and SO easy to drink. I feel like the banana is part of the distillery character and I love it. Very excellent foundational malt.
Sweet and spicy, with sharp pepper, spicy Mexican chocolate, and bourbon vanilla. After a bit of time, quite strong apple juice and INTENSE strawberry-banana smoothie dominates. Fascinating!
A bit anemic. A bit hot and spirity. But again, sweet and pleasantly spicy, with pepper and a mint overtone.
Oak, pepper, and heat. As if a grain spirit. But then developing into a hot banana flambé!
The nose looks like a highlander like Aberfeldy. Easy, you can even say that it's vague. Slightly spirituous. Lollipops, water with sugar. Vanilla notes. Dust on books. Notch ascorbic. 20
Easy-going. Plain. Moderately sweet. Bourbon motifs. Here, alcoholism is felt stronger. 18
The average length, after an inarticulate taste, is surprisingly pleasant, warming, although also simple. With time, smoke begins to appear. 20
In principle, nothing bad to say about him can not be - no unpleasant off-line, it's easy and pleasant to drink. But simple and light-weight. Balance 20.
- Very light and delicate, with wood and a little caramel. I perceive fruits, but I struggle to identify them. The aromas are not very pronounced, the finesse is required. But surprise, with time, these scents fade little by little. On the palate, thin but muscular, with fruit a little more supported (cherry?). A bit stiff when swallowing. With water, the nose is not very active. I detect a strange egg flavor. (Fresh egg is heard) In the mouth, we go from a fine texture to creamier, but the whole is quite bland. The finish, spicy, still burns even with water. According to sources, I read First Fill Bourbon or Refill Bourbon (I look for Refill saw the weakness of aromas!) Followed by Sherry Oak (where that?) And Swedish Oak (ah good). They had to make a misspelling in the name, it's rather Brusk Whisky! Enthusiasm 2/5
fruits, pepper, oak
medium, a little young but good for a pre-dinner drink
A batch from 2013.
N: Fruity [wheat/corn-like] cereal bar whisky with a putty=clay-like copper edge, a touch of ‘lemon-fresh’ washing detergent and a hazy pong gathering overhead. The pine needles, pears & pineapples are far lower in the mix compared to even earlier batches.
T: With quite a youthful zing at 41.4%. we’ve a sour corn-like opening with a dryish fruit-tannic barley-cream waxy-corn/soft bourbon development. Edgy but fairly likeable with water fluffing up the whole presentation. Distillate faithful, the [bourbon] casks add character whilst playing the supportive role.
F: Short with some sourness, water brings curry aromatic spice notes. Lemon detergent lingers with an underlying sour vegetal lactose decay note.
C: I’m very font of these early batches. Despite a few wavering batches thereafter I find them competent and characterful.Scores a C[+]
