Mackmyra Jaktlycka, 46.1%

Price: $72 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This seasonal whisky's name translates to “happy hunting” and evokes the Swedish love of foraging for berries in the forest. The complex recipe involves a component whisky filled into a variety of casks seasoned with Grythyttan Vin's lingonberry and blueberry wine. Fragrant nose, with soft white fruits, grasses, and root ginger, with flavors of blueberry, honey, dried peel, and a fireworks extravaganza of spices before a cashew and hazelnut finish. SEK599
