Whisky Reviews for Macallan 1957

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.89 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    You have to abkönnen, accordingly not quite my rail, but with the 93P as neutral as possible. My fellow-button loves bitterness and even he went to the limit. If he was not so silky and soft, there would have been a good 2-3P less.
    • Nose
      Puh, hard to penetrate, just a pure, dark castle wall of dark chocolate, coffee beans and old leather, as well as old oak boards, with the time (and much of it) look single other notes but on the Burgzinnen, saffron, fennel, dark honey, marzipan, Rumrosines, dates, black cherries, black truffles, always come short and go back behind the wall, burnt creme brulee, walnut, lavender, Earl Gray tea, sweet licorice and ricola
    • Taste
      The best I can think of to describe the overall mouthfeel. Silky dryness. Like a handful of walnuts, dark chocolate and chestnuts wrapped in velvet, strong for 43% and yet elegant, dark forest honey, figs, dates, wall unit, lots of saffron and anise, caraway and curcumin
    • Finish
      Ricola, walnuts, dates, raisins and many tannins, Earl Gray and black tea, chestnut, long
