  1. Deloti scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    2cl sample in 2019
    • Nose
      86 86
      Heavy sherry, plenty of it, and plenty of herbs. Oranges, spiced rum.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Strong sherry from start to finish. Overripe fruits notes are very present here as well. There's a background flavour that reminds me of Kvas. Pepper, salt, treacle, anise tea, old wood. Just borderlining the acrid side of the sherry with time but not over into it. Very enjoyable
    • Finish
      84 84
      Long, drying and burning on berries, pepper, minty

  2. Allandale did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Bottled at 29 years old.

    Rosewood. Almost opaque.

    Passion fruit aroma.

    Palate has  violets, bitter  chocolate,fudge, and espresso.

    Bitterness of finish rather aggressive.

    I'm not sure what level of moderation is appropriate here, but it sure seems like the common elements here among these "new top three Macallans," e.g., those members identified by Imp below, should potentially have their scores discounted.

    Guys Min, Kohill, ChengA, Mengyao - have you tasted it? Are any tasting notes available?.. 

  5. Imp did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I try to neglect 99 and 100 scores... 

  6. lincolnimp did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I agree with Oklima here, there is some serious points manipulation on this site now.

  7. oklima did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    I wonder how many people who are rating this 97+ have actually tried it...
