    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.
