Whisky Reviews for Macallan 1970

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.64 points

  1. Nanjing scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    I love this malt, so powerful, so intense, but at the same time smooth and excellent in after taste.
    Nose: very complex, lots of red tangerines, prunes, tropical fruits, some dried dates, very classy old Macallan
    Taste: oak, spices, dark fruits, lemon zest, mouth-watering, then turns to coffee and dark chocolates, followed by oranges again.
    Finish: very long, cherry with dates, black pepper in orange jam, nice oak, some nuts and butter chocolates. Great!

  2. Allandale did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Bottled at 32 years old.

    Dark claret colour.

    Oaky aroma,but Macallan spiciness and apple esters come through.

    Chewy, malty, sweet, rum-butter flavours.

    Sherrish.

    The finish is peppery and very long, with some woody astringency.
