Tasting Notes by BMWS
Bedlington Malt Whisky Society sampled this particualr bottle on the 17th of October 2012.
We were very pleasantly surprised at the amount of complex flavours were hidden in this bottle of very young whisky. At only 3-4 years old we were not expecting a lot from it. However with having no previous knowledge that there was such a thing as Swedish whisky, we were curious.
Mackmyra First Edition is very pale, it tricks you into thinking that there won't be much to it.
Nose: Very sweet and fruity. Apples and pears, with hints of citrus. Marzipan, spice and honey.
Body: Light, but with a slight kick.
Palate: More fruit and more spice. Very sweet toffee hints. Dried fruits, very Christmassy.
Finish: Caramel, toffee and autumn fruits. Nice warm glow, leaving you with a kiss of honey.
All in all a damn good malt. But, if this young whisky is that good, imagine what will be coming out of Seden in 6 or 7 years time! We can't wait to find out
