    One of my absolute favorite Macallans so far with an enormous fruitiness but at the same time it is maritime - powerful elegance!

    Single dram note with Armin Fuchs.
    • Nose
      What a Macallan!

      Old Sherry cask with the most elegant fruitiness and spiciness.

      Peach, raisin, bowle and lot and lots of oranges tingle throughout.

      Later hints of peat and french brandy appear as well makinn this dram so wonderfully complex. Wonderful spiciness.

      Later more citrus chocolate and raisins. Hints of brine.

      Noble cigars and leather chocolate. Sweet black tea (East Frisians).
    • Taste
      Everything from fruits to cognac and chocolate.

      Leather appears, fruits are playing throughout and intensely.

      Burnt sugar, different jams but seaweed and saltiness at the same time.

      Again forest aromas with some wet wood.

      Noble liquors and sage.

      Clear liquorice developing.
    • Finish
      Big old Sherry cask with plum liquor, liquorice, cognac and loads of fruit juices.

      Sweet cherries and alcohol pralines.

      Very pleasant bitterness here, eucalyptus and chamomile.
