  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Not my favourite Mackmyra but a decent drinker.
    • Nose
      Big on vanilla with a hint of fresh hops and quite a bit of oak. Plenty spicy as well, like nutmeg and cracked black pepper corns. Finally some whiffs of pear skin and white grapes.
    • Taste
      I enjoy the oily mouthfeel, although it is somewhat tannic and has a slight woody bitterness, accompanied by the same spices. There's touches of honey, but it is also quite herbal.
    • Finish
      Malty and spicy but on the shorter side.

    I don't need a large bottle of it.

      Takes some time in the glass (around 20 minutes). Vanilla and its own oak seasoning. Forest honey and herbs.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Wild herbs and forest honey. Vanilla and oak seasoning. But something one-dimensional and a lot of wood.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Medium length, especially a lot of fresh wood and oak spice. Getting drier.

    Mackmyra Svensk Ek, 46.1% alc. Original bottling. Expansion: Swedish oak. Type: single malt whisky

    Nose: pastries. Shortbread and sugar cakes, followed by unripe bananas in maple syrup and apricots. With a little time in the glass you will see thyme, some marzipan and damp forest floor.

    Palate: Very oily on the tongue, taste different than expected. Lots of pepper and vanilla, the wood sugar still leaves a strong sweetness, which is much less fruity than on the nose. Some lime and grapefruit, otherwise a lot of brown sugar, caramel, cinnamon and oak wood. The pepper aroma runs completely through the taste.

    Finish: Medium-long and dry, the pepper moves into the background and makes room for a mixture of sweet caramel, white coffee and a mild pinch of cinnamon.

    Conclusion: Exciting variety of flavors, this Mackmyra simply turns in a completely different direction on the palate. 81/100 points (2021).

  7. Kraddell scored this whisky 75 points Member Senior

    Pours light, golden and clear. Scent is milder vanilla. Milder intensity overall, i'd say. Taste is fairly full, vaniline, wood, mild sharpness. Medium loud alcohol. Very woody, yet remains gentle. Bit dry, oaky, lovely. Not very unique, just very well made. 74%

    Rerate : This time I notes a lot more dryness, less vaniline - and more outspoken elegant side to it. I prefer it by quite a bit now, so upping the score to 76 %.

    New average score : 75 % . Curious how i'll like it if I ever run into it yet again.
