Whisky or Whiskey

Interesting fact… Mackmyra First Edition whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Sweden. Had it been produced in America its name would be Mackmyra First Edition whiskey, instead of whisky.

Mackmyra First Bottling Note

The first release of Swedish single malt from Mackmyra. A good deal of this was matured in virgin Swedish oak casks, many of which were as small as 100 litres.

    User Reviews of the Mackmyra First Edition

    I'm not swedish

    I'm not swedish (in fact I'm argentinian), but the point is how good (or not) is Mackmyra. Personally I was surprised: Mackmyra is fresh and citric, but complex and quite different if you compare it with traditional single malts. Recommended to whom enjoy Cragganmore, japanese Hakushu, and similars.

    Delicious, sweet and rich

    Don't bother with the more expensive expressions, just get this! (That said, I haven't tried all of the other expressions).

    Will be following with interest...

    Floral, aromatic with a lot of oak in it, Mackmyra First Edition is a bold step from the distillery. The overall taste is very personal (is it the Swedish oak then?) and i'd say fans of, for example, The Macallan should look into this. Will be following Mackmyra with great interest.

    Brilliant

    I tasted this - Mackmyra First Edition - on a whim while in Stockholm earlier this week. It's one of the most enjoyable whiskies I have ever had -- I brought back three bottles to the US. It drinks like a cross between a highlands scotch (think Oban) and an accessible bourbon (say, Blanton's). It's deceptively smooth at first taste, but has a long finish that leaves you thinking, "Wow, they made a great single malt in Sweden."

    An American view

    I'm always on the lookout for something different to add to my (proper) whisky collection (currently 40+), and stumbled upon the Mackmyra. I find it a pleasant, sipable distillation, somewhat reminiscent of Cardhu.

    Hit or miss?

    I see some folks like this one, but for me it was a complete miss. I disliked everyhting about it, felt more like a vodka than a whisky.

    English enjoying Mackmyra

    Well I consider myself lucky, I have a good friend in Sweden who like myself drinks Malt whiskey, he has his own barrel cut for him and sends me one or two. I have Bodas gruvlager bottled in 2009 and it is nicer than you would think. For those that have not tasted Swedish Whiskey, I urge you to try it you wont be disappointed but impressed by their attention to what whiskey drinkers want from a good whiskey. Oh just as a word of warning be careful of Vit Hund it bites.

    I am swedish too :)

    I'm not the patriotic kind, but I really get baffled by some Swedes who hate Mackmyra, really puzzling. Especially since there really is nothing to be ashamed of, tasted the new-made spirit two and a half years back enjoyed it reasonably, this however is astonishing for such a young whisky. It has 2 more years than the new-made but it's such an improvement. If you like your fruity Speysiders or citrus-sy Lowland whiskies then this is a MUST-buy, it has a fantastic citrus note, that's delicious and complex.

    Quite enjoyable

    I really enjoyed this whisky, very comparable to a Speyside malt in my opinion and would recommend.

    Very different, very good!

    Not sure why the first reviewer only gave this whisky 2 stars considering the positivity of their review, so I shall add some balance by throwing in my opinion. I bought a bottle of this after trying a free dram at the duty free and I absolutely loved it. This is a young whisky (~3-4 years) and tends to leave people thinking "hmm, interesting", yet this whisky shows the character of a much older malt. Brazen in its arrival and develops into a fruity carnival. I really couldn't compare Mackmyra to any Scotch as it is so unique and like nothing I have ever tasted before. At 46.1% ABV there's room for a few drops of water should you wish; I find adding a dash attenuates the alcohol blast and allows one to enjoy the sweet, fruity flavours underneath!

    Swedish singlemalt?

    This Whisky has its own signature indeed. Matured in 30 litres Swedish oak barrels (!) and also stored under ground in deep caves . Its very fruity on the palate and a fresh gery pears to the nose . The quality is stunning but you might be dissapointed compared to scottish whisky wich is much more "woody" I´am from Sweden myself by the way and very happy to find our whiskey on your market!

    I'am Swedish

    I think the Swedish whiskey was very good, and I have personally visited Macmyra. Other Whisky one that I recorded in each of the Scapa 12yo was the set that run on me and my scores on the six points each Kent Kreuzer Sweden
