  2. The Macallan scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A rare opportunity to taste a hidden gem like this.

    At first the aromas are locked, so water is essential. Then the mineral, floral like on the nose

    Spices and floral notes in the flavor (grasses, perhaps gingery)

    The finish was good, but yet so light.Very enjoyable!

    I just retasted it and would go for one point less today (86, because of the slightly bitter finish),,,

    [January, 2017]  ...continuing my CGBP-project (The "Cadenhead Green Bottle Period" lasted from late-1990 until mid-1998 and is characterised by its small size white labels).  I bought this bottle for 90 Euro in August, 2007 and this is my last saved sample.Quite good old standard stuff from the Cadenhead green bottle period.  Very closed when neat it needs a fair share of water and after that quite some time to open up.  DO NOT drink it neat right after opening the bottle, you will be disappointed (harsh and pungent)!  After some minutes it gets nicely sweet and rounded with mostly floral and wooden aromas.  Unfortunately it dries out and gets a little bitter in the finish. But this goes almost completely away if you let it breathe for some more minutes...All in all good stuff for drinking, but nothing to remember by tomorrow night.  It is just a little bit simple...

    Lots to discover in this old Macduff. Complex and delicious!
    • Nose
      Lots of mineral notes to start with. Cut grass. Resinous. Herbs of camphor and camomile. Ginger. Pine and eucalyptus later on. A bit of sulphur at the background.
    • Taste
      Rich and creamy. More fruity on the palate than on the nose. Quite sharp zestiness of lemon and lime. Followed by more gentle pear drops and yellow apples. Honey and vanilla. Milk chocalate. Cedar wood tannins.
    • Finish
      Medium long. A little pepper. Mint. Liquorice.
