Mackmyra Svensk Ek Reviews

Lovely. Putting my money where my mouth is.

Absolutely gorgeous. I loved it so much that I have just bought myself a whole cask (of similar) from the distillery! (58 bottles/'elegant' recipe/swedish oak cask#2015/48.1%) This is the future of integrity whisky, non-chill filtered, no colouring, swedish oak, deeply sweet and spicy. Nose, palate and finish are all completely different animals which make this a really interesting dram.

Complex and Sweet

Dangerously drinkable, slightly smoky but with a sweet finish.

Great whisky for the money

Worth a try, for sub £50 it’s hard to match

Give it a try

Different taste with touch of sweetness. Like it as something different.

mackmyra is yellow and green

bananas and pine needles, basic mackmyra with little bit added spiciness from 10% swedish oak, lovely nose, young but it dont really matter cause they are so good with casks, very different but hey so it should be. lemon, unripe banana, peppery, some eucalyptus oil towards the end, more pepper, look for all the different good, then try mix ;) or horizontal tasting anyway, more than ok+

Taste like apple juice

This is really not my cup of whisky. It's very sweet, and got too much of apple taste to it. It's a very dominant trait, unfortunately.

Advent adventure

I found it harsher than any Scottish malt. Very pleasant drink, but much more like a schnapps than a whisky. Sweet and minty nose, Christmas herbs and spices followed by pleasing warmth.

Quite a lot going on

This NAS certainly needs water and patience. I really like it, the spice (cinnamon), the oak, with well integrated sweetness and a pleasant warmth.

2016 Advent Calendar Notes

This is a new and interesting one. A bit astringent on the nose with some hint of something spicy. More spice on the palate, almost a kind of saltiness. On the finish, some wood, some pear tart. Mostly harmless though not something I would jump to buy.

Palatable but uncomplicated.

The predominant scent taste of this whisky are sweet and minty. There's no smoke whatsoever, and nothing dry. Whilst being sweet, it's not cloying in the same way as I find some Bourbons (I'm not a Bourbon fan.) Very distinct from Scottish whisky. The vest I can say about this whisky is, inoffensive and not as characterless as, say, brand name blends.

Intriguing, better with water than neat as it brings out the flavour it has, but ultimately a bit thin....
