  1. BSWproject27 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      78 78
      Phenols come right at you but after a minute or two sweeter notes of fruit salad and oak come through
    • Taste
      82 82
      A bit tingly on the palate at first introduction. Caramel and a hint of tar are present
    • Finish
      82 82
      Rather long but a tad bitter with malty-oak, Bourbon, vanilla and some spice. For me, this dram was rather complex and requires some time to unlock. Water does not hurt the experience but keep it to a drop or two.

    Macallan delivers and I like it. I want more of it.
    • Nose
      Sherry, vanilla, oak, honey, caramel, cinnamon,
    • Taste
      Sherry, oak, balanced but expected it to be smoother, almonds
    • Finish
      Medium long finish and a pure enjoyment

  4. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    "This triple cask combination delivers an extraordinarily smooth, delicate yet complex Single Malt matured at The Macallan distillery for a minimum of 15 years.

    "Tasting notes: Rich straw in color. The nose is sublime and full, with a hint of rose and cinnamon. Intense flavors of rich chocolate with a hint of orange and raisin. Lingering finish with a hint of chocolate, orange and dried fruits." - Distillery

    I still prefer the standard 12 over the Fine Oak series.
    • Nose
      Vanilla.  Buttercream icing.  Orange peels.  Varnish.  White bread. Coconut.
    • Taste
      Honey drenched nuts.  More vanilla.  Citrus.  Malt.  Chardonnay?
    • Finish
      Medium length.  Soft fruits.
