Mackmyra - Vintersol - Swedish Single Malt Whisky.
Mackmyra Vintersol (Winter Sun) is a Swedish single malt whisky created in collaboration with the Port wine producer Quinta Do Vallado, one of the oldest and most famous Quintas in the Douro Valley.
The aromatic profile of the whisky comes from finishing in casks that previously held port wine with notes of vanilla, chocolate and pepper.
The resulting whisky is elegant with a light spiciness and notes of warm raisins, sun ripe fruits, tropical berries, buttery pear fudge, vanilla and toasted oak.
Nose: Spicy and herbal with fruity warm vinous grape tones and a minerality. Soft vanilla oakiness, with aromas of anise, ginger, raisin, pear caramel and vanilla.
Palate: Soft, fruty yet spicy with dried fruit, pears and raisins, ginger and vanilla. With a creamy and medium-rich texture.
Finish: Fruity, spicy and oaky with warm raisins.
