Whisky Reviews for Crabbie 30-year-old JCrC

  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Got confirmed that it's a Macallan! However, the quality is not top-notch, still a decent dram but not worth the £500 tag. Yeah, it's true that £500 is a bargain for a Macallan 30. However, you will never get it confirmed since the bottler didn't pay for the name, the market value of this is hugely degraded.
    • Nose
      Well sherried, just like a decent aged Macallan, a little peat and oak
    • Taste
      Now peat is present, intense, sour barley, citrus fruits
    • Finish
      Long and dry, very minty

  2. lincolnimp did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

     I have heard that this is a Macallan 30 Year Old Sherry Cask expression and was distilled in the year when some lightly peated malt was used by mistake by Macallan apparently, but cannot confirm.

    It costs £500 in the UK and I have heard it is nice but also not worth that sort of money.
