  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Note made on two sips during a tasting evening. Enthusiasm 4/5 Whisky n ° 1584
    • Nose
      Sherry melted, sweet and fresh. Small note of sulfur. Frangipane.
    • Taste
      Fade and subtle, not really a sherry bomb in the end. Very slightly tannic.
    • Finish
      Relatively short.

    The Macallan is very dark, probably colored. The aroma is characterized by plum jam. This is joined by vanilla and sherry flavors. Very light, chemical nuances complete the whole thing. The taste: pure sherry! But there are still plum, vanilla and cinnamon with the sherry. A really nice combination. The mouthfeel is slightly dry. The aftermath is mild and soft.
    Hmm ... a nice drop. For friends of the Sherrynoten a highlight. Balanced and delicious.
