Whisky Reviews for Mackmyra Moment Malström

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.22 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur


    Predominantly matured in their forest warehouse [an old munitions store] near a fishing hamlet, Malstrom is cask matured for around 8 years in five types of 30 litres casks: bourbon, new US, Swedish, oloroso and hybrids [casks with Swedish oak heads].

    N: It’s so very soft i’m finding it hard to read. Fungal oily sugars, young Armagnac/rum sugars, a little greasiness, salt & vinegar and thin blackberry juice.
    T: Sugar-complex with linseed putty mash - a profile quickly emerging as the more mature Mackmyra house-style than the pear drops & pine needle days. Also with the putty-ed oily sugars are the sweet-sour [grapefruit] citrus notes.
    F: Holds on no problem before bowing out politely. Concludes unusually with fruit putty Shreddies.
    C: Far more than the eye first sees. But then, £110!Scores a B-

    I hope i got this right: This is a true limited edition whisky [1500 bottles], taken from 30 ltr ‘Ambassador’ casks - 2nd refill’s with new Swedish oak ends, as well as 1st fill sherry & bourbon. The ‘Ambassadors’ include casks/cask components from five of those private investor casks from around 2002+. Correct, Alex?

    N: Good controlled funk.
    T: Some sugariness to start,…. aah, it’s not quite there.
    F: Manageable peppery heat.
    C: Not sure really, best try another day.Scores a CTake 2:

    Malstrom means whirlpool.

    N: Pineapple cubes, pine needles, waxy/buttery, putty/spongey sherry - thats Mackmyras distillery character right there. Gossamer-soft nose without any noticeable desperate/rushed wood extraction, despite coming solely from those diddy 30ltr casks - clever. T: Density on arrival with all of the notes above, delivered in a honeyed & soft resinous capsule of moorishness.F: Youthful woody pine needles with a tannic-sweet dry finish.C: This highlights how strong the distillery character of Mackmyra is, clearly identifiable then as it is now.Today it scores more like a B-
