14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.26 points

  1. lincolnimp did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    How can the same member have 2 x 100 rates recorded in the average for the same bottle?
    This affects the average score, I thought if you rated the primary bottle and then a derivative bottle this would not show?

  2. jjkmlss scored this whisky 10 points Expert Junior

    Really people? This is better than Dalmore 21? In a massive impression? THIS???

    It just feels like Macallan fans should be kick out of WB, no kidding. If you feel objective to give any Macallan a 87, there will be idiots who rate this 97 to make the total 92. So I'm rating this 10, in purpose. Just let you know this is a 87.

  3. Scoochscotch scored this whisky 87 points Newbie

    This is one of the all time classics. I have had a bottle of this every year since 1997. Over the years it has changed slightly, but always a quality dram. My only complaint as of late is the lower quality sherry caskings than even 8 years ago. Almost like there is more refill than first fill. This scotch deserves to be priced at about $150. $200 or more and you might as well move up to Rare cask which is a much better dram.
    • Nose
      Wonderful fruits. Hard to beat Mac 18 nose.
    • Taste
      Buttery smooth. Fruits.
    • Finish
      medium and would be better if it was bottled at 46%

  4. maltaholic scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A very intense Sherrynote, heavy, mature, old, fantastic.
    A light spiciness hovers over the glass, pickled fruits.

    Creamy, soft in the mouth.
    The oak makes itself felt.
    A wonderful barrel.
    I only marvel venerably.
    Sherry, oak, vanilla. That's it ...

    Great!

    Guys, you fool! Only 86. And that, of course, is not worth $ 500!
