- Appearance : Pale yellow with hints of green.
- Nose : Ample, subtle. Verbena, camphor, avocado and kiwi are among its most original fragrances. To which is added a handful of aromatic plants redolent of Chartreuse. Simply brimming over with green. Notes of chlorophyll and fern.
- Palate : Smooth and firm, with lots of character. Vegetal notes (barley, dried grass) scattered with citrus fruit and fresh fruit (green apple, pear) and dried fruit (pistachio, cashew nut) take us to the finish line in a single sip.
- Overall : Long, it prolongs the framework defined by the palate, adding pine resin and heather honey. Notes of fish and dill give it an almost aquatic dimension. The empty glass evokes the Chablis premier cru ‘Vaucoupins’, which is made with slightly over-ripe grap
- The brand
Located in the province of Gästrikland, the Mackmyra distillery first opened its doors in 1999. Unique in more than one respect, Mackmyra was the first distillery in Sweden to produce whisky. It produces single malts produced from Swedish barley and sources its water from an underground spring fed by the hills of Valboåsen. While part of its whisky stock is left to mature in 100 litre casks, the Mackmyra distillery also uses first-fill ex-bourbon barrels that, once filled, are stocked in a warehouse 50 metres underground in the “Bodäs” mine. It also uses new Swedish oak casks from a forest located on the island of Visingsö, planted over 160 years ago to provide a source of wood for the construction of military navy boats.
