Mackmyra Moment Solsken, 52.6%

Price: $162 Issue: Winter 2014 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Solsken comprises a parcel of smaller sherry and Swedish oak casks hand-picked by master blender Angela D'Orazio. The nose is like a basket of hot breakfast pastries, with honeycomb, tinned peaches, cinnamon, and hot teacakes with singed edges smoking from the grill. An amazing, golden taste that's warm and soothing; sucked lozenges, mandarin segments, tame spices, and cobnut. The strength of the alcohol remains veiled in the shadows until the swallow…then it pounces. Mouth puckering finish of sharp fruit juices.€130
