Whisky Reviews for Macallan Lumina

12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 78.78 points

  1. Hemdl scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    In the nose, really, really appealing.

    The taste and the finish but something of flat and boring - unbelievable. The current price (just under 85 €) can be described as impudence.

  5. corbuso scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    A rather thin and weak version of Macallan, with some spices and light floral and fragrant flavours...

    Joa, like all NAS Mac, he suffers from subtle miscarriages that come from all the stuff ...

  7. Achany scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Nose was a bit shy at first, sweet, some vanilla, all right. some traces of dark fruits, some milk chocolate as well. nice but very gentle spices, not overly complex, but still a fine dram to drink. We bought and drank a bottle of this malt on the ferry from Ijmuiden to Newcastle and for that trip it was just perfect

  9. maltaholic scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Spicy, woody.

    Some aftertaste in the mouth. Can not say exactly what that should be.
    The oak note predominates in taste.

    Not spectacular, but ok.

  10. The Macallan scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    A nice touch of subtle Macallan flavors, it reminded me of the Macallan Elegancia but less intense.
