Whisky Reviews for Macallan 1972

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.21 points

  1. I_SPEY scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Nicely sherried, with notes of plums and dried apricots; some toffee and a wonderful smokiness with hints of peppermint, molasses and chocolate covered with raisins. Very nice notes of Christmas cake and cinnamon rolls.Perfectly sherried just the way I like it! Wow, what a Nose!

    Mouth: very silky, with chocolate, oranges and some great hints of smoke!  Getting slightly salty towards the finish.

    Finish: Not long enough(!) and  alas a slightly dry finish. The top is in The Nose!Thanks a lot for this exceptional sample, V.! 

  2. Feusi scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Chocolate and sweet malt with toffee and spicy sherry. In the background, a whiff of smoke comes into play. One of the best.

    OMG hands down another classic malt. This Anniversary edition is awesome. Many years ago I purchased this from Bev Mo stores for 299$us now it is up to 699$ It is amazing how time flies and how much I still have left of that bottle after all these years. Drink on special occasions and with dear friends that appreciate the best.
