Whisky Reviews for Macallan 07-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.13 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    For 7y and 40% absolutely top and so probably not available today, but more% would have been good for him and I would have preferred a little less apple and more orange, but you can't have everything.
    • Nose
      Initially noticeable OB flavor towards damp wood and a nut mix that has been open for a year, but opens up after 5-10 minutes to great bitter orange, freshly ground malt, red apple, marinated ham with honey, candied citrus fruits, cocoa, walnut A hint of nutmeg
    • Taste
      Caramel, cocoa, liquid milk chocolate, red apple and especially apple peel, nutmeg, crunchy malt, a hint of stored Calvados almost, it is so apple-like in the mouth, the bitter orange unfortunately only subtly in the background here, brown sugar, forest honey, a hint of fresh ginger, sweet grasses
    • Finish
      Gentle (clear at 40% and 7y), very shallow in the threading (but without simply breaking off), warm apple and ginger, grasses, barely medium length
