Mackmyra Moment Norrsken (6), NAS, 53,2 %

Mackmyra Moment NorrskenHere is the next installment in the Moment series from Mackmyra. The Mackmyra Moment Norrsken was the sixth release in the series. It was released on December 1, 2011, in a limited run of around 1500 bottles.

The Mackmyra Moment Norrsken was matured in a mix of 100 litre bourbon and sherry casks, and 30 litre bourbon, sherry and fresh Swedish oak casks.

The name ‘Norrsken’ means northern lights (aurora borealis).

Nose: Vanilla, barley juice, cereal, toast, and banana. A bit earthy, I think. Soft notes of dried fruits, but the sherry influence is rather mild. Not much peatiness on the nose.

Taste: Rich and full bodied mouthfeel. Sweet and with medium spiciness. Banana, honey, ginger and cinnamon. Hints of ashes and wood smoke.

Finish: Medium long finish. Remains rather sweet throughout. Honey with a touch of ginger and slightly burnt toast. Turns a bit watery and thin right at the end – leaving me with simple syrup and not much more.

Comments: A fine, young dram from Mackmyra.

Score (83/100)
