Distillery visit at Swedish Mackmyra North of Stockholm was a extraordinary expirience. Patrick did a good job taking us through the proces of making Mackmyra Whisky.
To top of the guided tour of the distillery we participated in "giving birth to a new baby cask" I got to carry the cask and hammer the plug in the bung hole 😊
After filling the cask we went to the "Skog" (forest) warehouse, which is more like a bunker, to put the cask to rest for the next 4-5 years. I can warmly recommend a tour at Mackmyra Distillery and the whisky is also delisious 😉 More on that matter to come 😊
Glenallachie Distillery Edition - Nose: Another malty nose and sweet with vanilla, green apple and pear Palate: Sweet, barley sugar and lots of vanilla now along with citrus and orchard fruits Finish: Fairly short, pleasant fruit and malt
This is the closest I have come to the original Jameson in scotch whisky with those vanilla and green apple notes giving quite a striking similarity. A NAS whisky, this is the first official bottling from this little known distillery in some time. No major complexity here, but still a very easy going standard bottling.
