  1. eleiko5 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Macallan 15 yo 1995 (46%, A.D. Rattray 2011, bourbon cask #11251, 334 btl.)

    Nose: caramelized apple with cinnamon. Heather honey. Apple cake. Muesli bars. Nice duality of sticky sweet (almost greasy) butterscotch notes and a more fresh and sour fruitiness. Traces of toasted cereals. Herbs in the background. Nice. Mouth: starts a little soft. Not the amount of sweetness I expected, more like a herbal fruitiness. Cider apples, peaches and citrus. Honey and caramel. Sweet grains. Soft liquorice. Not bad but lacking some punch in the middle. Finish: not too long but nice chocolate notes and hints of Turkish delight. Still some apple flavours.

    This Macallan started with an inviting and interestingly different nose, but the palate wasn’t totally convincing. Should be € 50 round.

    Score: 83/100

    This is a typical card players whisky. Sweet and
    accessible. And affordable too, with its price tag of around 50 EUR. Thanks,
    Jurgen, for the sample.
    • Nose
      The nose is surprisingly fresh and floral. Dried grass
      and heathery flowers. Soft honey. A whole lot of white fruit, mostly Granny
      Smith apples, baked with a sniff of cinnamon. Cider. Cake. Soft garden herbs.
    • Taste
      The attack is very gentle and for a minute it seems to
      go the wrong way. But then the honey and spices take the lead and allow the
      fruitiness to display itself. Loads of apples and pears. Vanilla. Mild tannins.
      Eminently quaffable.
    • Finish
      The finish is rather short and lingers on those
      apples.
