Whisky Reviews for Macallan 2000 GM

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.59 points

  1. Macallan1968 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A great Spymalt, where the term "strength and elegance" is absolutely the program. On the one hand deep and already very complex, but on the other hand powerful and spicy. It takes some time to open up completely, but then the balance between sherry barrel and distillery character comes to the fore. Even with the 2nd dram, never boring. No sherry bomb like the other G&M barrel 12389.

      Spicy sherry nose, toffee, roasted almonds, rock candy, fruity with orange in the background. A little honey and vanilla.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Strong, spicy, aromatic and balanced. Sweet sherry, toffee and vanilla, combined with forest honey and chocolate. Later in the direction of coffee and spicy oak.
    • Finish

      Medium length, balanced and creamy. Coffee, chocolate and again the spicy oak - hardly any fruit.

      A nice typical sherry nose, oily, greasy and hazelnut
    • Taste
      84 84
      Malty sweet and full of herbs. Then it gets a peppery note and strange off notes

    SMELL strong start with intense sherry, dark toffee and citrus fruits. TASTE nice and sweet with vanilla and plum sauce. Then generously with cinnamon, clove, star anise, nuts and light pepper. On the finish with roasted nuts, oak and chocolate.
