Whisky Reviews for Macallan 1990 MI

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.59 points

  1. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A classic whisky aged in bourbon casks. Old-fashioned, neat, thoroughbred - such a gentleman! It is difficult to recognize a traditional Macallan in this sample.
    • Nose
      Lightweight and discreet at the same time. First nose - French baguette, butter, vanilla. Deeper - apricot jam, yellow pear, old leather, tobacco, mint. After a while, echoes of caramel and Duchess candies appear. The scent develops and transforms.
    • Taste
      Malt, vanilla and peppery tones coexist with pear, apricot, menthol and oak.
    • Finish
      Long-lasting, measured, flowing smoothly. At first, hints of vanilla and fresh baked goods appear, then notes of caramel, Duchess soda and orange appear. In the end, peppery, oak tones, old and cigar flavor, and a mint note are long pursued.

    • Nose

      fresh
      apple puree o, pineapple ester (white gummibears) o/-, somewhat
      flour-y/starch-y. (86)A
      bit later: vanilla (beans) +/o, light spices o, wood (bright) o/-. (88)
    • Taste

      again
      gummybears (more varied in colour, green, red & white together),
      feeling somewhat cool/cold although on room temperature and a tad
      watery (86)
    • Finish

      very
      gentle, fruity & nice slow decline despite feeling watered down.
      (89)

      Later:
      some menthol notes appear next to the fruit. Interesting, but not
      better for me. (86)
