Whisky reviews for Macallan Private Eye

5 users have left 5 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 94.52 points.

  1. Proneor scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    Nose - bright, open, fruity. You definitely feel sherry. Light shade of beeswax. Aroma of dates soaked in cognac. Then marzipan and chocolate. Fruitiness moves to exotic, bright fruits - grapefruit, apricot, pomegranate. Red grapes. Some leather notes. Deep, velvety aroma. Insanely captivating.
    The taste is slightly oily. Red and black dried fruits that add a nice touch of sweetness. Goji berries, dates, dried apricots. Red ripe apple. Light and balanced taste of oak tannins. A little dark chocolate, spices and sandalwood.
    The finish is a very long aftertaste of red fruits, prunes, quince. Black pepper, chocolate. This is just a fantastic whisky.

    [March, 1998]  I had this dram during a tasting at Kyrburg.  In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this dram 87,5.  My notes state this is a quite unusal Macallan (more malty, less complex).
