  1. Suevia scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Great whisky but has seen cask too much for a couple of years for my taste.
    The distinct peat smoke note is exciting!

      An insane number of different types of honey, especially thyme honey. Wax, peach, mirabelle plum, lemon glaze. In the background very fine, elegant peat smoke. Great, raised nose.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Oak spice, honey, clear peat smoke, later coffee, lemon and grapefruit. Smooth and ending with oak notes

    Bottled at 56 years old.

    Very attractive deep yellow,town colour.

    Spicy aroma,especially cinnamon. Syrupy. Lapping on the tongue.

    Lemony. Dry, herbal. 

    Slightly medicinal.

    Phenol. Peat smoke.

  5. The Macallan scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    A wonderful dram and even better then the other 1946 Select Reserve. A pleasure and a privilege to taste such a lovely dram.
    • Nose
      Peatsmoke and heavy fruit (reduced: nice smokey, citrus, cacao and very refined)
    • Taste
      Dry, chewy, some peat, spicy and well balanced (reduced: very light fruity notes like citrus and some apple typical macallan).
    • Finish
      Light, warm and long with a nice echo of peat smoke.
