Whisky Reviews for Macallan 1990 CA

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.00 points

  1. Willie JJ scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very complex and very long. Best dram of the night for me. Seems younger
    than either of the 10 yos mainly because the wood influence is minimal,
    really kicking in only in the finish. This is a fine dram that keeps
    you interested all the way.
    • Nose
      Linseed and Candlewax. Hugely oily on the nose. Painty. Searching for the fruit but not finding it.
    • Taste
      Stewed apples and barley sugar. This is delicious. Cream and Cocoa. Ever so slightly nutty. Pear drops.
    • Finish
      Fizzez along for quite a while. Very spicy (with the mouth coating oiliness). Shortbread. Slightly resinous. Very complex.
