Mackmyra’s core expression is a light Swedish whisky matured primarily in first fill bourbon barrels but also includes whisky aged in Sherry and Swedish oak casks too as well as some smokier malt, which all adds to the complexity.
Nose: Fresh, delicate fruit aromas with vanilla pods. Pine nuts, pine needles, raspberry bushes and mixed peels. Ryvita and Sesame Snaps.
Palate: Vanilla cream, custard even and more fruit. Red berries, boiled sweets and rich, warming bourbon.
Finish: Spicy oak and apple pie whilst remaining light and nimble.
Overall: Tremendous easy-drinking single malt whisky from Sweden.
