    Macallan 16 yo 1990/2006 (46%, Milano
    Whisky Festival, cask #1754, 240 bottles)

    Colour: straw. Nose: not exactly bold
    but very pure and clean, starting
    on fresh butter, vanilla and whiffs
    of wood smoke. Gets then both grassier
    and nuttier, with also hints of hot
    bread (baguette of course) and faint
    hints of violets. Rather complex and
    elegant. No sherry that I can smell
    at first sniffs but something sherry-ish
    does develop indeed over time. Also
    slightly yeasty. More and more buttery
    notes. Mouth: good body, with much
    more sweetness at the attack (apple
    pie) as well as bunches of caramelised
    nuts and quite a lot of honey. Then
    dried figs, poached pears and plum
    jam. Coating. Finish: rather long,
    jammy, candied, with also sultanas.
    Terribly drinkable. SGP:643
    – 86 points.
