MACKMYRA MANDO DIAO - I SOLNEDGÃ…NGEN
Forget the band association and look at this stunning single cask release for what it is - a great tasting single cask whisky for what is now a cracking price.
Limited release of 396 bottles
Mackmyra has created a collectorâ€™s edition together with the Swedish band Mando Diaoâ€™s, called I solnedgÃ¥ngen Single Cask whisky. The collaboration celebrates uncompromising craftsmanship and Swedish tones and notes in terms of both flavour and music. The edition is part of Mackmyraâ€™s Private Cask selection, and the band has chosen a whisky with a smoky recipe matured in a 200-litre ex-bourbon cask.
The name of the edition is taken from the bandâ€™s new album â€œI solnedgÃ¥ngenâ€, which was released on 12/6 and went straight into the Sweden charts, where it has topped several categories and been acclaimed across the board by the Swedish media.
Nose:Â A bonfire kind of smokiness is slightly infused with a hint of juniper, sweet vanilla and salted toffee notes.
Palate: Smoky oak barrels with aromas of vanilla and almond, and hints of mint.
Finish: An amazingly long aftertaste of sweet smoky vanilla and almonds.
