Thanks very much to @mackmyrawhisky for this sample of Mackmyra Ten Years Swedish Single Malt Whisky. It is pictured here alongside Mackmyra Midnattssol and Special 07, two delicious malts. Time for a very Swedish dram session! 😁 #whisky #whiskey #singlemalt #mackmyra #sweden #swedish #picoftheday #instadram #whiskyporn #whiskygram #instawhisky #sample #flowers #funtimes
Type: Single malt whisky
Malt Mileage rating:
Nose: Ripe banana, raisins and vanilla cream, with toffee apple, cocoa, ground coffee, fortified wine and honey. The empty sample bottle smells of Maraschino cherries.
Taste: Drying and sugary, with raisins, fortified wine, wood smoke, herbal notes and hay. I also get honey, vanilla and soft cinnamon spice.
Finish: Dried herbs emerge (even potpourri) as wood smoke and sugars from the fortified wine fade, and what remains is the taste of lovely buttery caramels, toasted marshmallows, barley, and faint raisin.
