Tasting Notes by tjb

This expression was composed Barbro Hyllengren, who is the Distillery Visitor Manager at Mackmyra. Preludium:06 is a blend of smoky malt, stored for four years in first fill ex- bourbon casks. This base flavour is then augmented with whisky that has been stored in new, 100-litre American oak casks and bourbon casks, as well as some other selected casks.

This expression is bottled at 50.5% which, according to the blurb on the bottle, is for optimal flavour.

Pale straw in colour with real sparkle.

Flasknumber 27606. For those that speak Swedish it was Buteljerad (bottled) 06.11.2007.

Nose of smoke, vanilla, floral notes, citrus, caramel, peat, stewed cooking apples, and poppy seed bread.

Palate: Smoke, bbq, limes, vanilla.

Finish is medium, slight spice tang.

It lacks depth and whilst the flavours are good it seems slightly unsure of what it is supposed to be.
