  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    An angel on your tongue. That's what this old Macallan is. Nothing less, nothing more.
    • Nose
      Yes, yes, yes! This is so good. Dried apricots and prunes. Figs and dates. Raisins. Sultanas. Delicate dusty sweetness. Old furniture. Typical old nose.
    • Taste
      Very rich and round. Cherries. Kirsch liqueur. Some cooked apples and pears. Espresso coffee. Dark chocolate. Some smokiness at the background. A touch of dry peat. 
    • Finish
      Long and lingering. Cream toffee. Dry sherry. Little pepper and nutmeg.

    You only get something like that in a glass very, very rarely. An angel in velvet trousers glides down the throat...

    This was bottled mid 70's prior to the Rinaldi version. I liked this one a LOT better.
