    A Macallan, as he was allegedly produced in the 50s ...
    I did not have an original bottled macallan from the '50s until now, but if they tasted anything like this then I'm really happy about it ...

    The nose is still quite appealing, but the body is weak and brings with it a lot of "missing notes".
    The finish is also quite short and unbalanced.

    Without doubt, the series is beautiful to look at, but it is not very suitable for drinking.

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Here we approach the classic Macallan 10y Sherry Oak.
    • Nose
      Somewhat dusty wood on the nose, noticeable sherry notes, dark fruits, raisins and a nice spicy sweetness.
    • Taste
      In the mouth you will find typical aromas of sherry of raisins, dark fruits, oak, dried fruit. This whisky in yet again lighter than the 30s and 40s.
    • Finish
      The finish is relatively short, slightly mellow wood and a clear Sherrysüße.

  9. Malt Hans scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Fruity

    sherry aroma, dried figs, sultanas, cardamom, nutmeg, heather honey,

    vanilla and tea leaves. Marzipan sweet taste, pepper, tannins,

    eucalyptus, anise, lime and malt. Medium long, fruity and spicy end.

  10. The Macallan scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    After two decades of 'camping' The Macallan got back on track again with the typical lovely rich sherry notes. I like this one a lot.
    • Nose
      Delicate aroma's from a dried mixed fruit(raisins, sultanas, plum), like a dark secret that needs to be reveiled, lots of sherry drenched oranges nice and relaxed (reduced: fruity - apple, apricot, citrus[orange/manadrin], nutty - hazelnuts, peanuts and walnuts and some wood/smoke, later some flowery notes emerge from the depth).
    • Taste
      Sugar sweet, slightly chewy very good, some spices, fruit and milk chocolate at the same time (reduced: all flavors are getting milder, but very pleasant).
    • Finish
      Very easy, in the beginning an explosion of fruit and yet this warming glow with traces of smoke.
