Ambassador's Selection is an online exclusive, single-cask releases from Mackmyra. Personally chosen by one of the Brand Ambassadors, these whiskies showcase the expressions of 30 litre Reserve Cask Program. This cask uses the Prestored recipe; Elegant (unpeated) whisky that has been matured in 200L casks for four years before being finished for another four years and eight months in Gravity Casks. Jon, Brand Ambassador UK “I knew I wanted to chose a Prestored recipe in a Gravity cask from the Bodås Mines - it's everything Mackmyra in a glass! This cask really stood out for its complexity and balance. However, adding a drop of water really brings this one to life! The Swedish oak heads really shine through with added spiciness and depth. This is just one of those whiskies you just keep exploring and get something new each time." Notes according to Mackmyra: Nose: Citrus fruit dominates with mouth-watering zestiness. White grape, sandalwood, and sweetness from the bourbon staves. A drop of water opens up Turkish delight powdered sugar with a touch of liquorice. Taste: The taste is round, complex and smooth. Extremely well balanced. The Swedish Oak casks in the gravity heads come through with a gentle spiciness at the end, especially as it opens up or with water. Overall: This is a lovely cask definitely suited to those who like a well-rounded and thoughtful whisky that you can nose all night long.
