NEXT EVENT: Islay Explorer Whisky Tasting - 2nd November 2019
The core expression from the Mackmyra Distillery in Sweden.
The majority of flavour in this whisky is influenced by the large amounts of Bourbon casks that were used in the maturation, but notes of Sherry and wine casks are evident if you dig a little deeper.
A smooth and very enjoyable dram, offering fine toffee notes with subtle spices of ginger. A nutty nose leads to a marzipan note on the finish. Some people detect hints of smoke in this whisky.
