  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Worst Mac I've ever had and very blurred. No wonder that all Topbewerter are new accounts. A rogue who thinks something bad. ;)

      Maggi, sulfur, rotten egg, leather behind, dark chocolate and some old dresser

  3. Bluesman scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Not a bad one but it needs a lot of water.

  4. Achany scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    ouch, I like this one, hefty sherry on the nose, sweet, some vanilla, some dark fruits, matches some mouldy wine cellar, some matches again, dirty, not thatABV usual super well balanced and elegant stuff, this one has edges and fights back. ABV is nice, does not need water. finish is long, strong and full of spices. I really liked this one

  6. Numwierum scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Does not taste young and no trace of youth in this whisky. Wood is dominant in taste, but not bitter. Somehow, some notes in the Mac remind me of wine vinegar, bothering me personally.

  7. seacroft scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    A new contribution to the core range as an annual release. Probably cask strenght and uncolored but with some chill filtration. Nice clean sherry, fruity, especially oranges, a bit thin and spirity on the palate but over all, quite good balance. Probably a blend of very young to young Macallan in sherry seasoned casks. Obviously not at all as good as the old "Cask Strenght" Macallans but still quite tasty.
