      This has a really nice nose,

  4. The Macallan scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A lovely toy from Diageo, nice expression. The extra maturation just cleans of the rough edges and smoothens it. A lovely dram!!!
    • Nose
      Smokey (sweetening smoke), some smoke fish, in the back some fruity notes and some iodine (reduced: warm, acidity, cooked apples, very light smokey, less medicinal and sweetness from warm fruit).
    • Taste
      Full and a hint of briny notes, grinded pepper, juicy and yet that briny touch again - a salty note (reduced: nice and mellow, slightly some pepper and some woody/spicy notes).
    • Finish
      Long, dry/chewy, nice and warm mouthfeel.
