Mackmyra, Special 01 (bottled 2008), 51,6 %

Review #262
The first from the Special series from Mackmyra and it is called “Eminent Sherry”. This one is from sherry casks. Marzipan, but not too sweet, in the smell. Hints of dried fruits, but not as heavy as you would expect from sherry casks.

A bit strange taste at first and then the alcohol takes over. Some toasted oak in the finish mixed with hints of raisins. It is very rough with hints of grass and hay. It stays for quite a while, but nothing spectacular.

This is definitely not from first fill sherry casks. Maybe not even second fill… The usual sherry notes is not very present, and the color is very pale. Some water helps. I will give this 81/100 (20/20/21/20).
