    A classic!

  8. The Macallan scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Very nice as an aperitif or at the end of a Summer/Autumn evening.
    This version probably has its own secrets!! Quite some refill has been used here.
    • Nose
      Slightly sweet, slightly briny, a hint of vanilla and sherry.
    • Taste
      Sweet, salty and some spices like nutmeg perhaps! Very mature.
    • Finish
       Sweet start, slightly peppery and lingering.
