    Hello,

    I found out this site though the youtube postings on whisky after a trip to Scotland rekindled my whisky interest. I have found these videos interesting. Early on I almost only enjoyed whiskies with a lot of smoke but now I have widened my taste.
    My favourite distilleries right now are Lagavulin, Talisker and Bunnahabhin. Right now I am trying out some other distilleries such as Glefarclas, Edradour and Balblair.

    Regards
    Björn

    I grew up in Gävle and Mackmyra were situated just outside of Gävle at start and now they are situated in Gävle. In the old military area where I did my military service. Bought their second bottle release many years ago. Had one dram of that bottle and that whisky was so bad :biggrin: It is better now :smile:

    Good video of the distillery. Very modern. I spoke to a plumber who had been constructing the plumbing for the old Mackmyra distillery and he said that a lot were handmade because everything should look beautiful because of the visitors.

    It is an interesting choice that they have chosen to go so modern now compared with the old style at the old Mackmyra place.
