Color
Pale gold
Nose

The nose is fragrant, spicy oak, hand lotion and banana puree. Hints of bay leaf and thyme. Smooth creamy porridge underneath.

Taste

The body is lively and soft at the same time. More oily texture with a subtle sweetness. Polished wood and malt, the spice prickles through. Lots going on.

Finish

The finish is a little short but rewarding, loads of that creamy malt porridge and hints at clove and mace spices.

Comments

Mackmyra continues to out out great stuff, albeit youthful this is a great dram.  I think when some serious age statements come along, Scotland will have a real run on their products.

Pale gold
Nose

Rote-Beeren-Marmelade. Cremige Honigsüße und bisschen Toffee. Riecht für mich sehr lecker. Und dann kommt wieder die Banane durch, die ich schon im "Brukswhisky" entdeckt hatte.

Taste

Überraschend würzig und warm. Weniger süß als die Nase. Dafür deutlich fruchtiger. Eine gute Portion Eiche kommt am Ende durch und bringt ein bisschen dunkle Schokolade mit einer angenehmen Bitternote mit.

Finish

Mittellang und angenehm warm.

Nose

Die Nase ist sehr dezent-leicht. Ein schöner, aber etwas verhaltener Mix aus Apfel, Birne, grünem Tee und Limetten. Dazu gibt es hintergründig einen Hauch von Minze und nach dem ersten Schluck kommt auch etwas Vanille durch. Der Gesamteindruck ist sehr floral, fruchtig und leicht zugleich. Schön und sehr angenehm, da nichts Stechendes in der Nase, allerdings auch nicht allzu komplex.

Taste

Es geht sehr konsequent weiter. Auch geschmacklich ist der Svensk Ek ein fruchtiges Leichtgewicht. Er kommt fast schon ein bisschen cremig daher. Anfangs wie es die Nase erwarten lässt, ein Mix aus Apfel und Birne. Im Anschluss bäumt sich eine gewisse pfeffrige Schärfe auf und es entfalten sich Mandeln und etwas Vanille. Ich wünsche mir ein bisschen mehr geschmackliche Tiefe.

Finish

Das Finish ist relativ kurz und am stärksten von einer leicht pikanten Alkoholnote, hellen Früchten und einem Hauch von Vanille geprägt.

Comments

Ein schöner „Easy-to-Drink“ Sommerwhisky für Freunde leichter, fruchtiger und nicht rauchiger Tropfen. Persönlich fehlt mir ein wenig Körper und Intensität, aber dennoch war das ganz sicher nicht mein letzter Mackmyra. Eine wirklich gut trinkbare Horizonterweiterung.

Age: 7-9 years. Makeup:

  • 50% 1st fill casks.
  • 40% 128 litre bespoke sherry casks, adapted from US casks and then sherry-matured in their Bodas mine.
  • 10% Swedish oak that’s used to make 30 & 100 litre casks.

Historically there was no indigenous oak in Sweden. As a necessity, the Swedish Navy [300+ years ago] acquired saplings from Limousin to plant & grow oak for the expansion for their fleet. The saplings grew but due to the Swedish climate & soil, the trees end up tall and skinny. Hence the small & limited usage of Swedish oak for maturation.


Mackmyra ‘Svensk Ek’ [2017] Ob. 46.1% 

  • N: Similar profile to the Bruks but appearing a bit younger, naked, brasher. However, this appearance totally reverses later on. It relaxes with time, now creamier=oilier with notes of mint sauce, oily darker/more subtle vanilla, waxy-mushroom pate, ginger and holy basil [tulsi], The oily, fungal sherry only arises later on. Well married.
  • T: Sharper barley=oak oils, though changing with water towards tighter yet soft sweet putty and spice.
  • F: Longer finish than the Bruks.
  • C: The extra bit of ageing certainly shows, and pays off with more depth & length.

Gin clear
Nose

Een vriendelijke, jonge en levendige whisky, met fruitige en kruidige kenmerken. De jeugd zit hem in wat sporen van alcohol, en geuren van gist, deeg, en (appel)gebak. Daarnaast is genoeg fruit te vinden, in de vorm van citroen en appel. Daarnaast vriendelijke tonen van bloemen. Na verloop van tijd komen geuren van eik door, vergezeld van kruidnagel en kaneel.

Taste

Het palet is initieel iets terughoudend en scherp. Na verloop van tijd wordt hij toegankelijker. Hout domineert de smaak, met versgezaagde planken, vanille, peper, kruidnagel en gember. Het is ietwat aan de drogende kant. Na verloop van tijd komt wat romigheid van vanille en frisheid van citrus en appeltaart om de hoek kijken.

Finish

Kort tot middellang, met initieel wat peper, langzaam overlopend in kaneel en kruidnagel. Daarna komt de fruitigheid weer opzetten, samen met de broodachtige tonen. 

Comments

In het kort: een vriendelijke, jonge en fruitige whisky, die al flink wat houtinvloed heeft meegekregen. Lekker als aperitief in de zomer!

Wow, dit ruikt erg fris! Bloemig, geparfumeerd, citrus. Fris en fruitig. Ook wat Dreft, en zoet nu, beetje marsepein, vanille. Ruikt wel erg lekker!

Taste

Jemig, dit is even omschakelen... de smaak lijkt aanvankelijk totaal niet in lijn met de geur. Vreemde smaak, nog iets van karamel, verder kan ik er aanvankelijk weinig van maken. Wel vrij zacht. Nu toch wat koffie-achtigs, cappuchino. Licht pepertje. Er komt zo af en toe iets zeepachtigs door.

Finish

Iets nadrukkelijker (maar nog steeds licht) pepertje, soort van zoetig, honingachtigs. Of muffige abrikoos... Opnieuw kan ik de smaken niet echt plaatsen. Wel redelijk lange afdronk. Ietwat bittere nasleep. Houttonen, marsepein.

Comments

Gedronken tijdens een Blind Tasting. Geur was zeer veelbelovend, maar de smaak kon dit bepaald niet inlossen. De frisse en fruitige aroma's helaas niet teruggevonden in de smaak en finish. Niet echt in balans.
