    Well, coffee and whisky is a lovely combination. As is the case with this whisky. The nose is not the strongest part of this whisky, but its still enjoyable!
    • Nose
      Well, the nose is quite simple, but flirtatious.
    • Taste
      Vanilla, pear, and acidic coffee. Some pineapple and banana as well.
    • Finish
      The same notes goes again, and I don't know, but it feels like the coffee note lifts this whisky and its initial bourbon character. The vanilla and pear notes mixes well with that acidic coffee note.

  3. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    This is the best Mackmyra Special release so far. Almost equal to some good Mackmyra privat casks that I have tasted and really enjoyed. This whisky have personality, balance and quality although it lack some maturation in my opinion. 

    (Rating interval 84-86)
    • Nose
      Vanilla essence, bitter vanilla and some rough young spirit. There is also some berries, I'm thinking black currants and black berries, black berry marmalade. Some straw, aromatic oak, nutmeg and lemon candy. 
    • Taste
      Spicy vanilla on the arrival, custard, nutmeg, instant coffee and aromatic oak. Very measured arrival. Becomes fruitier in the development with banana, some sweet corn and oaky vanilla (almost like virgin oak matured whiskies). 
    • Finish
      The finish is quite rough and medium in length with banana essence, barley sugar and instant coffee. 

  4. Sonett scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    One of the better ones of the Mackmyra Specials. Nice hint of Coffey but still not get the feeling of really good whisky

  5. M@rio scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    A hint of coffee, especially in the nose afterwards.

    Slightly sweet and malty and very soft for the age.This Special 10 is definitely the best Mackmyra I`ve tried so far ...
