  1. WhiskyJug did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Macallan
    1938 (43%, OB, Corade France, early
    1980’s)

    This one should be roughly 45 years
    old and has been opened for ‘the
    Austrians’ and yours truly at
    Paris’ Harry's Bar. Yippee!

    Colour: gold / amber.

    Nose: oh well...
    this is, I mean, just amazing. Incredible
    smokiness and a full tanker of acacia
    honey as well as lilac, beeswax and
    leather polish. Goes on and on...
    ripe apricots, flower nectar, Seville
    oranges, orange syrup, whiffs of seawater...
    Absolutely exceptional. Gets smokier
    with time (Havana smoke). Hints of
    apple peelings. This nose just leaves
    me speechless (who said good news?)

    Mouth: amazingly lively, nervous,
    fruity... Apricot jam, ripe plums,
    chestnut honey, toasted brioche, high-grade
    pepper... Totally fantabulous. I’m
    afraid the rest will be censored by
    our anti-maltoporn police department.
    SGP: 845 (wazzat?)
