What they say:

Mackmyra Brukswhisky is an exciting, well-balanced whisky, created to be enjoyed at all times. Enjoy it as it is, with or without ice.

Nose: Butterscotch, citrus, pear, liquorice, banana and mint.

Taste: Fresh fruity and peppery. Youthful, fruity flavour with a spicy taste of toffee.

Colour: Light hay yellow with green reflections. As usual, no colouring added.

What I say:

Selected for our World of Whiskies tasting presented to the Water of Life Society. I couldn’t resist selecting something from Mackmyra in Sweden. I have yet to find an expression of theirs that has failed to impress me and so this was a safe option for a world whisky tasting as it was guaranteed to please!

Colour:

Straw gold (8/20), medium-heavy tears with long thin trails

Nose:

Floral violets and hyacinth, sweet honey, nail polish/acetone, new plastic pencil case, pencil shavings, toffee and fudge undertones and woody oak, Paula commented that this smelled like Mother’s Day in a bottle with all that floral aroma

Taste:

Light toffee sauce/caramel, blossom or woodland honey, cereal barley grist, some fizzy sherbet and fruity citrus zest, crisp green apples and pears, honeydew and galia melon

Finish:

Short/medium, fresh spruce and oak wood

Overall:

Light and refreshing, this had a beautiful nose and was favoured by those that love aroma, this was young and reasonably simple on the palate but very enjoyable. A close runner for the most favoured whisky of the tasting by Society members.
