Mackmyra Grönt Te (Swedish for green tea) is part of the season range of the distillery. This series includes editions featuring innovative seasonal characteristics. To create the Mackmyra Grönt Te, some clean spirit was macerated with a selection of green tea: Kaoribo Hojicha, Yame Sencha, Yame Gyokuro and Yame Matcha. The resulting maceration was diluted with oloroso sherry, which then was used to season casks that were used for a 19 month finish.

Tasting Notes

"Sweet fruits appear first and the sherry influence is very noticeable but not dominant. A touch of lychees, but also lightly floral and a tinge of honey and sultanas. Very subtle notes of tea leaves. The palate is along the lines of spicy oak, juicy fruits, herbs and vanilla, but there's also a good amount of floral honey. It's an easy drinker and a very more-ish whisky, yet challenging and with plenty to discover."
