  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    You can't go wrong with these old Macallan expressions, although this expression misses the real 'wow' factor for me. Still very enjoyable. From a time when Macallan really deserved the title 'The Rolls-Royce under the Single Malt Whisky's'.
    • Nose
      Classic Macallan sherry nose with of juicy plums, prunes dried sultanas. Stewed figs and dates as well. Hints of toffee and butterscotch. Chocolate covered raisins. Balsamic vinegar. Slightly dusty smokiness at the background.
    • Taste
      Quite some cinnamon and toffee now intermingled with woody notes of cedar oak. Followed with 'darker' hints of Christmas cake, mint praline and espresso coffee. Also crystallized oranges and roasted chestnuts.
    • Finish
      Medium long with toasty dryness. White pepper and a little nutmeg.
