Mackmyra 2013 Tasting Notes
Neat, without water
Picture this: Be catapulted back to your childhood with chewing gum and jelly bean machines and a tempting selection of classic sweets in tubs on oak shelves at an old-fashioned newsagent.
Nose: Sweet almonds, edible necklaces, banana mousse and toffee bananas. Strawberry crayons, watermelon and blueberry dragees. Bubblegum, mango drops, white chocolate milk, sorbet, and liquorice pipes. Chocolate liquors, crystallised ginger and rose water.
Palate: An oak spice rack with ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, star anise, cloves and cardamom. Cinnamon candies, sweet and chocolate mice, banana caramel, liquorice fudge, and candy apple. Rose water and a hint of birch smoke.
Finish: Long and persistent with spices and oak spicy.
With a few drops of water
Nose: Chocolate bananas, Turkish delights, cinnamon rolls, mint chewing gum, and floral gummies. Spit-roasted beef on birch wood and a pot of salad cream to dip Chinese lettuce leaves in.
Palate: Complex and layered like a full mean. Starter of prawns with black pepper and mayonnaise. Main of beef with cream, asparagus and mushrooms. Dessert of dark chocolate cake, coffee and walnut cake, and cinnamon buns. All tasted in front of a birch wood fire.
Finish: A long, lingering finish with spicy chocolate, chai tea and cinnamon roll

How much is shipping?
Shipping charges are calculated during checkout, depending on where you live and how many bottles you’re buying. Shipping within the UK is free on orders over £100.
What about taxes?
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
Which couriers do you use?
In the UK we use Royal Mail, Parcelforce and APC. US orders are sent via UPS. International orders use FedEx and DHL.
