Here is what Mackmyra say about this particular release:

“Our sixteenth release in the Moment series is a spicy, flavorful, Swedish malt whisky with intense cask notes in a very limited edition. The character comes from fine 30-liters casks of all kinds. Many different cask types and styles come together in this whisky, creating a fine unity. A delightful taste explosion with light smoke.”

You can still pick up a bottle of the Mackmyra Moment Malstöm online at around GBP 112.

Nose: Hmm..dusty citrus, anyone? Limes and oranges. Somewhat oaky as well, spicy and fresh. Toasted oak and fading wood smoke.

Taste: Medium body. A bit raw on the edges, straight off. Warm and with a bite of alcohol. Oak, vanilla and strange spices.

Finish: Medium to short finish. Oaky, spicy and raw all the way. There is a bitter character to it that I cannot quite place.

Comments: Not quite finding the balance with this one.

Score (75/100)
