  1. EnjoyLife89 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      91 91
      The nose immediately reminds me of the 12er Macallan Sherry Oak, only much stronger and more intense. Raisins; Cowardly; a creamy sweetness (like viscous molasses) vanilla; slight citrus freshness (for me it is a slight orange note); everything carried by clear but perfectly fitting spices; Toast; Butter toffee; nice barrel touch, for me the spices come with a gentle note of damp tobacco leaves;
    • Taste
      92 92
      gentle approach; sweet; then comes spicy barrel; it becomes delicately tart, like dark chocolate; really nice seasoning; now comes a clear nut; Tobacco again, could be almost a hint of leather (minimal); delicately tart, nice and warm from the wood;
    • Finish
      92 92
      Wow what is that special note? Nut? fresh wood? now comes orange; Spices; nut again; beautiful wood; Raisins; Figs; minimally tart, but absolutely pleasant.

    A house on the label? Think, this building reminds me of - OMG! - The Macall...

    I can agree with the taste of "Enjoy", but I don't quite get the number of points. I find the nose especially a little weak on the chest.
