Whisky Reviews for Macallan 1991 GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.29 points

  1. markfeit scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A solid Mac. Very similar to the fine oak series, thought this is a refill sherry. So very easy to drink, and what a Macallan should be. Smooth, showcasing the wood, a classic highland whisky. Solid.

    Finely spicy wood dominates this Macallan. The cool fruit is delicious, but I miss the sherry aroma here. Nevertheless, I have a fine and delicious Macallan in the glass.
    • Nose
      Fresh fruitiness flows from the glass, finely spicy wood ends with a hint of citrus fruits. Astonishingly, the 43% alcohol quickly starts to buffle in the nose. A flavor that is hard to define for me is spreading. The nose becomes slightly sprittig.
    • Taste
      Cool freshness and fine fruit are the first impression. The fine spicy wood follows the freshness. A fine, but subtle, sherry aroma follows. The wood becomes fine and slightly bitter. A full-nutty aroma is created.
    • Finish
      Again, this spicy wood. Slowly, the departure begins to exude a plump warmth. Slight sharpness arises, light tingle again. The finish is medium to long. At the end, a pleasant walnut flavor is created. Now the nut is slightly bitter.

    Bottlers note:

    Color: Golden amber.

    Excluding water: 
    - Flavor: Sherry influences with dried plums, apricots and Demerara sugar araromas. 
    - Taste: Chilli seasoning initially, with fresh pear and dark chocolate notes. A subtle edge of ashes of cigar develops. In medium body. 
    With water: 
    - Flavor: Lemon zest with hints of red apples and pear. Also present is an underlying flavor of aniseed. 
    - Taste: Black Pepper with pear and orange flavors. A slight hint of tobacco sticks. 
    Aftertaste: In the medium with a creamy texture.

    Comments: A well balanced Speysider.
