Mackmyra 1st Edition Swedish single malt was a bit of an epiphany purchase for me at the LCBO. Having recently returned from the whisky trail in Scotland I was on the hunt for an inexpensive yet interesting bottle (the gold standard for the frugal whisky enthusiast). Mackmyra's bright contemporary packaging suggests a young whisky and its Swedish origin held the promise of something a little bit different. This expression is aged in 100 litre casks, which accelerates the aging process, and weighs in at 46.1% unchillfiltered. There is no age statement.
