    • 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 description of "Enjoy", but I can't quite get to the number of points. I find the nose in particular a bit weak on the chest.

    Nice fat sherry nose. As it should be and with the orange juice note suspicious for Easter Elchies House, even if only in the background. In the mouth it could be a little more intense, because it is delicious. In the finish I see it similarly, only reinforced. I really like to enjoy the malt, but it doesn't justify the (issue) price of almost € 250. The (cheaper) 1993/2020 does that much better.
