    I can't find the right words but this Macallan is for sure one of the best of its time. An era very different from the modern Macallans. Simply SUPERB!!!
    • Nose
      Rich and intensive sherry wood, sweet raisins, nuts and dried fruits, something leathery and ashy, faint peat and smoke, then ripe fruits, I can't list everything here
    • Taste
      Wow - so fresh and rich sherry notes with the very great and famous sweetness of Macallan. Very oily, liquorice, thick and mellow like a syrup. Lots of dried fruits, raisins, nuts, soot, little leathery, chocolate, espresso and much more
    • Finish
      Long and warm, the sweetness is neverending

    Full body sherry with the famous sweetness. Just fantastic!
