Whisky Reviews for Macallan 12-year-old

18 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 78.88 points

  1. midnite scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Overpriced? Sure. Much maligned? Yes, but I'd say, a bit unfairly so. Of course this isn't as rich as its all-sherry-matured counterpart, but it's decent stuff. Good attack, and, most impressively, a very substantial finish considering the low ABV. Distillery character is shining through nicely as well. Definitely a respectable apéritif-style dram.

  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    A very, very boring, if not bad whisky. Little Mac, little everything.
    • Nose
      Lots of freshly unwrapped caramel, banana chips, honey, vanilla, toffee, fine oak, hint of apricot, sweet malt, almonds, macadamia
    • Taste
      Toffee, honey, fennel, rosemary, hints of pepper, nutmeg, many tannins, fresh malt, very dry banana, peanuts, vanilla, somehow characterless
    • Finish
      Some oak, toffee, vanilla and malt, short to medium, very standard

  3. larswehmeier scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Milder first impression. Elegant sweetness of vanilla and caramel. Fine fruit notes, which I unfortunately can not specify.
    • Taste
      Despite the low alcohol content quite strong onset on the tongue. Pleasant mild spice and also some oak immediately. Sweet malt and a little caramel. Also something fruity is back but I can not name it here.
    • Finish
      Medium. Will dry quickly and shows clear oak.

  4. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Starts with nuts, fragrant vanilla, egggnog, brittle and caramel sauce. Behind them malted malt, some orange and apricot and oak. Again and again echoes of sweet wine?
    • Taste
      Eichiger's entrance paired with floral hay, malt, vanilla, some chocolate, almonds and fruity notes of apple brandy, kirsch and dried apricot. Then it is always doughier and something reminiscent of Rührkuchenteig.
    • Finish
      Medium long and chocolaty.

  5. drinki scored this whisky 69 points Member Senior

    Not my taste. Noze is very weak and the finish supplies some okay aftertaste which is not very suitable.

  9. drkrylov scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Price/Quality: the best Fine Oak.
    • Nose
      Vanilla. Butterscotch. Orange chews.
    • Taste
      Mixed fruits, grapefruit and orange. Spices.
    • Finish
      Quite long, spicy and fruity.
