I'm not swedish
Delicious, sweet and rich
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.

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

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.

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
Hit or miss?
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.

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.

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'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.

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