Mackmyra Iskristall Single Malt Whisky. Image courtesy Mackmyra Distillery. Iskristall is Swedish for “ice crystal”, and this winter release from Mackmyra was finished in Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks that give it a Christmas-like aroma. The nose has notes of gingerbread, berry cobbler, honey, raisins, and a hint of cedar. The taste has a great mouthfeel — dry and intense with cinnamon balanced by fresh berries, honey, raisins, and a cedar note that comes out heading into the finish. The finish is very nice with dry, spiced fruits and that hint of cedar. (October, 2014)
