  2. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Nice ... very fine and flowing. A beautiful honey note welcomes you immediately. Great, ripe, cooked fruits. If I am not mistaken, I also find a trace of smoke. Vanilla, caramel combined with a slightly tart note. Chocolate and hazelnuts. Smells a bit like a damp, old book. With a little time in the glass, the honey becomes spicier. Candle wax, men's chocolate and ripe pineapple. Which brings some fruit acid. Not the trace of alcohol.
    • Taste
      Soft, tender, creamy onset. Immediately comes sweet, bright fruit. The spicy honey pushes on. Muesli and roasted aromas. Orange comes after and brings slightly sour with. But not much. The chocolate is then rather cocoa in the taste. The alcohol is there, but accompanies the story. The second sip is roasted almonds.
    • Finish
      Short - medium long. Now dominated by the oak and the sweetness steps back.

  4. The Macallan scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    A nice Daluaine from G&M but not very exceptional.
    • Nose
      Fruity (oranges), vanilla/toffee, cacao.
    • Taste
      Spicy/fruity, slightly sweet and very gentle.
    • Finish
      Very taste with Reine Claude flavors, but very short.
