Mackmyra Brukswhisky, 41,4%

Review #503
This is primarily from ex-American oak, but a little touch of Sherry casks and Swedish oak is in the mix as well. It is very fresh in the smell. Notes of malted barley and new make spirit. After a couple of minutes some fresh green apples and sweet pears comes forward.

The white fruits are dominant in the taste. Hints of citrus as well, with a little oak in the background. It gets more sweet in the finish. Especially marzipan comes to mind, alongside some vanilla and honey.

Not very complex, and a bit young. Apart from that, it is a fine dram, that works very well in the sunshine. And if you can enjoy it in the great Swedish scenery, it is perfect. I will give this 81/100 (20/20/21/20).
