Winter’s Smoke

The Vinterrök – meaning winter’s smoke - is a peaty Mackmyra with a twist. It got a finish in oak casks that were infused with Scotch Strong Ale (albeit produced in Norway). That is why Mackmyra describes this malt as ‘a smoky soul for beer lovers’. It is a mix of American oak and Swedish oak casks.

There is only a bit of smoke on the nose at first, but quite a bit of oak. Freshly sawed planks and wood shavings. Then some fruit kicks in. Think yellow apples and juicy pears. Hint of butter. Tobacco leaves. Beer…? Nope. After a few moments it becomes sweet and dark, if you get my meaning. Butterscotch and some chocolate. I think this is a very pleasant nose.

It is very creamy, even waxy, on the palate. A nice combination of sweet, sour and salty. Sweet as in vanilla and toffee, sour as in citrus and salty as in… I dunno. Ginger, pepper and aniseed are on duty. This reminds me of the creamy head on a sturdy ale. For a second (and a second only!) I am reminded of the Glenmorangie Signet! This is truly very good.

Wonderfully long, feisty and spicy finish with a sweet finale.

My, my, this has just jumped to the top of the list of my favorite Mackmyra (having said that I have only tried ten so far).

Nose

Dezenter Alkohol, leicht sprittig. Eine feine rauchige, leicht torfige Note, welche immer intensiver wird, drängt aus dem Glas. Süßes Malz mit einem Hauch Vanille vermischt sich mit dem Rauch. Etwas Frucht kommt hinzu. Leicht salzig mit wilden Kräutern.

Taste

Eine kurze Süße und ein feine Holznote wird sofort von dem rauchigen Aroma verdrängt. Leichter Pfeffer setzt sich auf die Zunge, etwas Schärfe und Gewürz kommen dazu. Wieder Salz, aber dies mal vermischt sich das Salz mit leichter Frucht.

Finish

Rauchig und intensiv verströmt der Abgang eine salzige, leicht bittere Wärme. Das Aroma des Salzes vermischt sich mit leicht bitteren Holzaromen. An am Ende tritt leichte Nuss in Erscheinung.

Comments

Mein erster Schwede! Die Nase ist  wirklich fein. Geschmacklich stört mich persönlich ein wenig das Salz. Ein grundsolider Whisky, gut trinkbar und mal etwas anderes. Noch immer habe ich einen salzigen Geschmack im Mund.

☆☆☆ Fassstarker Typ ☆ Es ist ein langer Weg zum Whisky-Experten - aber es ist eine schöne Zeit bis dahin! ☆ Fassstarker Typ ☆☆☆

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Zitrone, Birne, Erbsen, Vanille, etwas Alkohol, frische Minze oder ist es Rauch? Es ist Rauch


Taste

frische Zitrone, dazu das Weisse der Zitrone, hier ist der Rauch zu merken, Vanille, Birne und Haferflocken, gekeimtes Korn, sehr trocken


Finish

die Vanille bleibt und zum Schluss kommen noch ein paar junge Eichennoten, der trockene Rauch ist jedoch immer präsent


Comments

Lecker, leicht rauchig und frisch. Ein schöner unkomplizierter Whisky, mit teilweise ungewöhnlichen Aromen, der echt Spass macht
