  1. huangshantong scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A very good Macallan.
    Very clean and comfortable Shirley, the flavor is not unassuming, but very elegant.
    The entrance is very classic dark fruit flavor, and the expression of sherry barrels.

    Fantastic Macallan.
    • Nose
      Quintessentially Macallan. And a very sherried one. Rich. Red fruit, grape juice, subtle oak spice, christmas spice, orange zest.
    • Taste
      Sweet and rich, with deep red fruit, grape juice, cinnamon, clove, oak spice, pepper, mild orange.
    • Finish
      Long, rich, and sweet, with red fruit, dark honey, and drying spice.

  7. nallacam scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    After a long time, I pour myself one of the controversial Macallan NAS bottlings.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Immediately after pouring it is very intense and a very active barrel is noticeable.
      The alcohol is dominant, which could also be due to the Blender's glass.
      Metal and glue are first in the foreground.
      After a few minutes it becomes more harmonious and spices come in behind a good portion of oak
      appear. Cardamom, clove, licorice, allspice, and a hint of a pickle jar.
      Sweetness and caramel cover everything a little.

      A very youthful character, like a classroom, where every student wants to say something at the same time
      and it is difficult to perceive the individual things differently.
    • Taste
      85 85
      In the mouth everything becomes a bit rounder, tobacco is added, earthy notes and above all oak.
      The seasoning is the clearest, time opens it up a bit ... but he can't hide his youth.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length, simple and slightly bitter. But not the unpleasant bitterness, rather that of an aperitif.

    For me, the colleague is definitely a bit too rough and young. The quality of the Edition series goes down, especially compared to the first two.
    Sure, there are some who like the here, as the reviews show.
