  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.

    with water: the malt takes the little power it still had, now significantly fruity, softer and milder, almost too mild, the youthfulness also comes out more clearly - so be careful with adding water!

    Conclusion: an interesting entry into the range, the malt is too thin for me, the complexity is also missing and I find the pepper annoying in the long run
    • Nose

      Apple, green banana, a little honey and a lot of vanilla with a little cookie dough, plus a lot of white pepper, looks quite young and unfinished
    • Taste
      76 76
      quite light, not a bombshell, vanilla, oak, white pepper, subtle fruitiness, grassy
    • Finish
      76 76
      rather short, almonds and marzipan, banana, vanilla, cake batter and nutmeg, oak seasoning, white pepper

    Very well made indeed, but unfortunately not very interesting. If you are after a solid whisky, from a not so well known distillery though, this is perfect.

  6. ctu scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A pleasant swedish single malt, although slightly green.
    • Nose
      Green apple, vanilla, honey, unripe peach, citruses and sawdust.
    • Taste
      Oily. Citruses, green apple, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, sawdust and pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium length, fruity, spicy.

    Did someone replace this with a fruit punch? It's all just tropical and autumn seasoned fruits.
