Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Another subtle entrant. Scented with light pine and wild berries. A juniper like note, this time mixed with spelt flour and lemon.
Palate: Very clean and clear with white berry fruits and a little hint of spice. Excellent refreshing acidity moving into pear juice. With water it remains cool, restrained but with excellent balance.
Finish: Cool and clean.
Comment: This shows how well Mackmyra has developed. No need to hope, the point has been proved.
8.1
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Light and grassy. Aniseed biscuits. A touch of lemon. Crushed fresh hazelnuts. Very fresh.
Palate: Sweet and nicely flowing. Good clean maltiness. Good balance. Getting spicy.
Finish: Slightly astringent.
Comment: A refreshing and clean whisky. Ideal to pair with seafood or shellfish: scallops, sushi or langoustines.
