Mackmyra 2013, Swell de Spirits, 500ml

  • Colour: deep gold. Nose: back to civilisation, back to Chopin, Ravel and The Rolling Stones. Banana bread, fresh praline, dried figs and pears, maple syrup, a bit of white chocolate, vanilla pods, rum baba, nougat… It really is a gentle Mackmyra, matured in no silly wood (seemingly, this far). With water: roots and green bananas. That's the oak. Manioc. Mouth (neat): a tad harsher, more on ginger and cinnamon (which I always found pretty 'Mackmyra'), with some rather green tannins, white pepper, oak spices… Was is virgin US oak or virgin European oak? With water: a wee feeling of rye, ginger cookies, candied ginger… Finish: drier and rather drying. Comments: pretty good, but in my book, the oak really feels here. A bottling that may be a little 'un-Swell', if I may. The nose was lovely though, and that's why we won't go below…
