    Maybe our European members can provide some info on this new (to me)
    whiskey.

    Not available in the U.S. as far as I can tell.

    Very good reviews:

    Re: Mackmyra Svensk Whisky

    I can remember trying this whisky a few years ago at whiskylive Leiden(NL),it has a sharp harsh taste,very young but promising in the future when matured.It certainly wasn`t bad hints of oak,malt and some hidden fruitiness,but for the price of a bottle you can buy a good Scottish single malt.Hopefully they find funds or investors to get storagerooms,it can tuen out to be a really great whisky when it has aged for some years.Eric.

    I have followed this distillery since before it started and visited it several times Josh. The whisky I have tasted havenít impressed much though as it have seemed to young. Due to my lost interest in single malt I havenít tasted the later realises. An interesting thing is that they mix the peat with juniper twigs witch give a bit different smoke character compared to Scottish.
    As it is Swedish and I am a (very small) shareholder I hope they will do fine in the future.

    This does sound interesting! It looks like it's not found outside of Europe. I don't get to travel much but see I'm going to have to start traveling to find new things to try.
