Whisky Reviews for Macallan 1940 GM

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.05 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 96 points Connoisseur

    [March, 2005]  I finished a bottle of this delicious stuff together with some good friends down at my cellar.  I bought it for 530 Euro in July, 2004.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 95+.  My notes state a very complex profile of old style sherry and intense fruity aromas with a nice OBF.  Surprisingly there are significant peaty flavours too (for a Macallan).  It all works in dozens of different layers and waves.  I added the word "SENSATIONAL" (in capital letters).
