The Mackmyra Preludium 03

The Mackmyra Preludium 03 … a Swedish Single Malt Whisky!  The basic flavour of Preludium 03 comprises Swedish malt whisky matured in sherry casks, spiced with special recipe smoked over a juniper and peat fire.

Mackmyra is the oldest of the whisky distilleries in Sweden, and the only one with a whisky on the market.

The Swedes are a nation in the Middle Ages, through the merger of the Gauteng and Svear. The name for Sweden is derived from the latter strain. Sweden is the largest country in Scandinavia, it is 11 times as large as the Netherlands and 15 times the size of Belgium.

And here is more ..

In the time of the mighty Vikings, they spoke a common Germanic language Old Norse or Norrön. Nowadays, there is a clear distinction between the Danish, Norwegian and Swedish. Sweden has no official language. De facto, this is Swedish. Recognized minority languages are the Sami, Finnish and Roma.

  • Name: Mackmyra Preludium 3
  • Type: Single Malt
  • Country: Sweden
  • Price per standard amount: € 60,00

This whisky has a typical Swedish Mackmyra taste but slightly different from the Mackmyra  first edition. If I get a chance  to try this one again! I would!

Mackmyra gave me a nice and warm feeling inside. I wonder how I will feel while drinking this Whisky in Sweden, in the snow while skiing from a hill …  while spotting some large mammals such as moose, bears and lynxes.

Maybe some wolves and wolverines, but they are much rarer, I’ve read.


  • Colour: light Gold
  • Nose: Fruity nose, aroma of raisins and butter, sherry and slightly smoky notes
  • Taste: Intense, aromas of dried figs, sherry, raisins, dates, a tone of chocolate and butter
  • Finish: Fruit aromas, with notes of sherry and light smokiness

Suggestions: Pure…. or very, very small drops of water.


I give this whisky an 8 out of 10.
