  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 73 points Connoisseur

    A pleasant, neat highland malt!
    [Color] honey;
    • Nose
      mild, fruity (apples), honey, a little vanilla;
    • Taste
      soft fruity onset, sweet, honey, caramel, creamy, nutty, very malty, juicy oranges, young, but no off-flavors;
    • Finish
      short finish; sweet fruity decaying;

  2. Falnor scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    Sadly a big failure for a name that supposed to be the best. There are not many OB 10 year olds which are less impressive. Still there are also not many flaws, it's just nothing special.
    • Nose
      69 69
      Malty stuff, honey, sugarred nuts, cookies
    • Taste
      71 71
      Grains, Cornflakes, some citrus, flat taste but still sharp alcohol.
    • Finish
      69 69
      Toffee, pencils, oak

  5. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Overall, pretty little Macallan. Already the FO12 is a big step forward.
    • Nose
      Huh, pretty shy ... After a while something floral. Light fruit, some honey and some oak. Hay and some malt.
    • Taste
      Honey again, light fruit, some oak.
    • Finish
      Mitellang, oak, dark chocolate. Again malt and hay.

  10. vojt466 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    My first Macallan, despite the unflattering rating, I have to say that I am tasty and not a little ...
    • Nose
      Varnish, wax, woody, honey, vanilla, floral tones, peaches, oranges, some of the scent of wine. The smell is light but swollen sweet and sour
    • Taste
      Sweet-bitter woody, bitter chocolate, nuts and some pepper, oranges, lemons - the taste is again quite round and full
    • Finish
      Woodland, nuts, varnish, bitter chocolate predominate, and a bit of fruit and cinnamon
