Chorlton Whisky Mackmyra 12 Years Old Single Malt Swedish Whisky (70cl / 50.2%)
My first foray into the world of whisky outside of Scotland is a rare chance to try a non-finished single cask from Sweden’s Mackmyra distillery. The nose is super-clean and foresty (very Scandi!), with rye, caraway, lemon sponge and hints of apricot. The palate continues the theme with gingerbread, spiced cookies, juniper and a zingy orange/grapefruit fruitiness in the finish. Really interesting stuff, and a profile quite unlike any Scotch.
This bourbon barrel was fully matured in an abandoned mine under the Swedish forest, and produced 278 bottles at 50.2%.
