  2. Dris scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Distinct cane sugar sweetness. Understated maltiness with a minimal sultana twist. Not much body to it, just the bland sweetness. Does not work for me.

    Of all the new NAS Macs, it's the one with the least amount of soap and other junk, pretty dark and crisp, yummy.

  4. ctu scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Not a sherry bomb like Ruby, massively oaky too.
    • Nose
      Sherry, maple syrup, raisin, gerbeaud, orange peel and milk coffee.
    • Taste
      Sherry, tannic oak, strawberry white chocolate and cocoa.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy, oaky.

  5. The Macallan scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Much better then the Quest and the Lumina, lovely sheried layers compared to the Ruby this one has less big sherry flavors you would expect from European oak.

  7. Drochaid scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The Macallan Terra is a classic filling of firstfill sherry casks and comes with hints of toffee, dried fruit and spicy notes of wood. The barrels come from Tevasa and Vasyma from Jerez de la Frontera in Spain. Bottled in a 70 cl bottle with 43.8% volume
