Nordic Whisky #143 - Mackmyra Moment Mareld (13)
Mackmyra Moment Mareld (13), NAS, 52,2 %
The Mackmyra Moment Mareld has, according to the official product sheet, had a finish described as "smoke and sherry casks". I am not exactly sure what a smoke finish means.
Nose: Warm, delicate and approachable. This is a dram that invites you to come closer. It is sweet, lightly fruity, with a solid base of wood smoke with a green-ish edge (grass and juniper). There are sherry notes - dried fruits etc - but they are rather toned down.
Taste: Medium body, with oily and soft mouthfeel. Light spices, juniper, dry ashes and dark chocolate (not the really dark stuff, mind you).
Finish: Medium long finish. Milk chocolate now, with coffee on the side. Hot chocolate topped with fresh, whipped cream. Add some licorice and you're good to go.
Comments: This is one for the long winter evenings. Best enjoyed in your mountain cabin, while the winter storms rage on relentlessly. I really enjoyed this.
