Nose: The smoke is present immediately, but has a very creamy effect. Moist earth, coniferous forest and vanilla. A little hay and lots of herbs, salty liquorice, honey and even a little chocolate.
Palate: Very spicy, lots of earth and various herbs. Here the juniper can also be felt for the first time. In addition, anise, mint and some ammonia. A little Latakia tobacco and sea salt in chocolate. In addition, citrus fruits stay in the background all the time.
Finish: Medium to long, spicy. Carry on as you did on the palate, add more mint and a mild pepper aroma.
Conclusion: I really liked this Mackmyra. The smoke brings depth and a bit of complexity with it, but it never loses its central theme. Really nice single malt from Sweden. 85/100 points (2021)
