Review by Whisky Saga

The queuing outside Systembolaget continued when Preludium:04 was released. Mackmyra dedicated it to "their own whisky cellar - Bodås Mine", where all casks where stored at that time. Just like the earlier bottlings of the Preludium series, the base was the "Elegant" recipe matured on first-fill ex-bourbonm casks. It was seasoned with some other casks: ex-champagne, Swedish oak, and ex-sherry. Once again Systembolaget purchased 9096 bottles. Notes according to Mackmyra: Nose: Very fruity eith aromas of pear, banana, toffee and vanilla candy, roasted oak, honey and chocolate. A lightly integrated smokeyness can be hinted. Taste: Fiery with toffee and vanilla tones and lightly roasted oak casks. A well balanced whift om smoke is embedded in the taste, with a small touch of fresh saltiness.Finish is freshly fruity, a little acidy and buttery.
