Mackmyra Preludium #5

 21 Sep 2007  

The fifth bottling in Mack­myra's "Preludium" series arrived re­cently. Here's my review of it:

Mackmyra Pre­lud­ium:05:
Nice nose with fresh fruity notes, also dry and "dusty" (like a rye whisky). Sweet, fruity, oaky palate - nice but a little dis­ap­point­ing after the promising nose. Dry and spicy finish. All in all it's similar in style to #4 but it's richer and more mature. Un­for­tu­nately it's a little unbal­anced and not as clean and fresh as its predecessor. (84 p)
