    I have bought and tried 2 bottles of this concept 3 in a row, but I somehow cannot appreciate its taste. The nosing was quite enjoyable, has a fruity smell and slight orange flavour. However, the taste is too plain. The nonexistence of its complexity was unlike the quality of the previous concept 1&2. The sourness is overt, whilst the alcohol feeling is subtle. The finish is also quite simple, leaving a citrus-liked taste in the mouth. I would say that it is one of, if not the worst Macallan I have ever tried. I doubted if the poor performance was idiosyncratic in the first place. After tasting two bottles consecutively, I would say the quality of Concept 3 does not merit the name of Macallan.

    Injured at work for one day.
    • Nose
      Sour oranges, a touch of McGregor's dead wood sherry, latex waste, neroli essential oil, fruit hard candy, Zhenjiang meat, fermented bean curd, hydrogen sulfide, industrial waste gas.
    • Taste
      Compared to the smell, it is simply too flat, orange petals, slightly fermented dough, malt aroma, white oak, dry cheese, red fruit, and more obvious sulfur. Slightly low-age alcohol irritation, but the performance is not obvious at the level of 40%.
      In general, the oil is medium to low, low in sweetness, very slightly sour, no astringency, no bitterness, no pungency, and no alcohol.
    • Finish
      Generally, light white chocolate, orange peel, vomit.
