Also from Mackmyra Whisky Distillery
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.

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

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