Description

Mackmyra Vinterglod (winter glow) is an elegant Swedish single malt whisky distilled at Mackmyra Bruk. This whisky is inspired by the Swedish winter tradition of drinking mulled wine during the colder months of the year. Vinterglod carries notes of orange, candied fruit and almond, together with oak and a ginger-like spiciness. The aromatic profile of the whisky comes from its aging in casks that previously held Swedish mulled wine and Pedro Ximenez Sherry. An unique choice for your winter traditions! On the nose spicy with berries, fruits and light oily notes. Toasted notes of vanilla, oak and caramel fudge. A light warm and oaky spiciness with a hint of tar and mineralities. Sweet notes of raisin, marzipan, citrus and pear drop. Blackcurrant notes of older whisky are found together with spicy and herbal notes of aniseed, ginger and tobacco leaves. The palate is spicy with a nice balance between fruits, berries, oils and oak. Blackcurrant, pear fudge and grapefruit. Pleasant spicy oak with hints of tar and tobacco leaves. The texture has a light oiliness.

Underwhelming

A Swedish whiskey is a novelty and highlighting this 10 year as being made in casks that have brewed mulled wine is the unique selling point, however the finish is not remotely deserving of the price point. The nose isn't particularly pleasing even after airing in the glass, the swallow is harsh and while it does get better with ice or water dilution it is at most a £20 bottle and not the £61 it is being sold at. At this price point there are far more superior whiskies that put a smile on your face instantly and novelty factor doesn't balance the lack of drinker's joy that one would hope for. The mulled wine casks hardly came through the nose or the pallet. At this price considering other whiskies available, this is certainly one to avoid. Disappointing.
