Mackmyra Special: 02 The Swedish malt whiskey

titletitle

 
It is always with curiosity as they await the new Mackmyra. Will there be rush to the stores again? Opinions on their whiskey has always been shared, and just that the debate shows what interest there is for Swedish whiskey. May 2, launched Mackmyra Special: 02. Bottle of 70cl has an alcohol content of 50.6%

 

An intense and spicy whiskey

 

At first sight, smell sweet and fruity. Do not put your nose near the bottom of the whiskey glass, but keep it away from and capture the volatile aromas. This young whiskey, barely 6 years old, also notes that I could easily take the old whiskey than that in a blind test. Spicy opportunities, then. This light smoke sits like a veil, and binds together the whiskey in a good way.

The flavor is smoky fact much clearer than in the aroma. Oak spicy character to be found also in taste. May be at the whiskey glass for a while, you can find clear vanilla and pears in the aroma.


I also tried whiskey with water. With water, I found the Special: 02 got a little tip, less balanced and harder in the aftertaste. It may be a tingling aftertaste that do well.
This whiskey, despite his muscular strength alcohol, I would prefer it without water. Since this is an intense, pleasant and fruity whiskey with spicy body clad in a pair of thin linen trousers of tar. After-taste is dominated by the taste of a pencil. A bit sweaty price tag, but certainly well worth trying.


In Mackmyra there is potential in the future. Wait 5 to 10 years and many "pundits" will be shooting itself in the tail after what they have said about Mack Ant. Good luck Mackmyra!

Small casks, Swedish oak and storage in Bodås mine.
Much of the whisky has been stored in 100-litre casks, which produces an exciting, powerful ageing process. Mackmyra have also used newly manufactured Swedish oak casks, made using oak that was planted on the island of Visingsö 160 years ago and intended for use in building warships for the Swedish navy. The base is the Elegant recipe, stored in bourbon casks of first fill quality. All stored in the Bodås mine, 50 metres down inside the primary rock.

 

Citrus, caramel and honey.
The colour is light yellow, with hints of amber. The nose is fruity with citrus, pear, apple, honey, light oak with hints of lightly toasted bread and fresh, buttery caramel. The flavour is fruity and subtle, with citrus, caramel and honey. A light hint of oak can be noted at the end. The aftertaste is well-adjusted and balanced, with hints of dark chocolate. r>
For optimal flavour, the alcohol strength has been adjusted to 46.1% using naturally purified water from the Valbo Ridge.
