      Great, that's a whisky for the blender glass. Very buttery, soft, sweet-floral sherry. Reminds me of the harmony of a spring bench with its beautiful mildness. No alcohol, fruity plum and leather are a problem here.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Despite only 40% a very nice palate, remains even medium-long, super round, mild, harmonious, somewhat refreshing than the nose, slight bitterness and wood, tobacco. Sure, could have more percentages and is far too expensive compared to a Bunnahabhain 12, but it's just a really good, light whisky.

    A deep and generous whisky, brilliantly offering the shades of an exclusive aging in sherry barrels.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Complex, fresh and fruity.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Creamy and round, surprisingly sweet, notes of dried fruit, spices like vanilla taking time to appear.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Woody and spicy with a return of dried fruit that lingers pleasantly in length.

  6. EvilAFI scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    It’s hard to fault if you like a balanced sherry driven dram. Macallan sherry is second to nine and this a great price for a age statement Macallan.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Bold sweet sherry, rich and decadent. Plums and syrupy raisins, light spice and oak.
    • Taste
      88 88
      A bit flat, sherry and spice are almost equal here, hint of orange and yes there is a ginger zip. Balanced and easy.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The spices and ginger linger nicely, while the sherry sweetness envelops the mouth subtly.
