Mackmyra Single Malt (1st Release), 46.1%

Price: $90/liter Issue: Summer 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

After several years off the market, this welcome return from Mackmyra was composed from a mixture of cask types, including Swedish oak, and matured underground in the Bodås mine. Floral notes, honey, citrus, vanilla, and pears poached in cream, with balancing tartness from gooseberry and grapefruit. A delicious summer whisky with sweet lemon biscuits, clementine, apricot, vanilla fudge, and active spices which mellow to expose banana, honeydew melon, and a finish of bitter lemon and mixed peel.
