3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.80 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 93 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.

  2. Master Quill scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

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