The Mackmyra Vintersol is the 2019 winter release from this famous Swedish distillery. It aims to offer a taste of Swedish winters with a Portuguese influence. Casks from the Quinta do Vallado winery in Portugal's Duoro Valley were used. The Port finish gives this whisky a beautiful reddish hue and some fruity notes.
