      a fruity, sweet smell of: dried fruit (dates, figs, sultanas) a little sherry, appealingly pleasant
    • Taste
      85 85
      Easy start, a bit spicy, slightly malty, again dried fruit, sherry and a bit of oak, a hint of tart, slightly sweet ...
    • Finish
      85 85
      Soft, sweetish-tart with oak, not bitter, sherry and dried fruits, long and balanced, sticky to the palate with notes of sherry and malt ...

      Conclusion: a good NAS whisky, but not cheap as usual for Macallan ...

  2. nallacam scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Uncomplicated Macallan with a classic profile. Soft sherry notes with a clear spice note, in my nose I have a potpurri made of allspice, clove and nutmeg.

    Light and not particularly complex, but very accessible and easy to drink.

    Typical Macallan. Even the first smell and the first sips you realize that it is a typical Macallan. Great whisky. About the price can certainly argue.

      Wine aroma, sweetness and dark chocolate, a hint of fudge and nuttiness, very complex, great in the overall taste

      Long, lots of sweetness, then some pepper, finally pleasant oak
