  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    As much as I found the 1991 excellent, this is really disappointing and more representative of the 90s MacAllan, lacks balance.

  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm: Nose and mouth: 4/5 final: 3/5 Whisky n ° 1750
    • Nose
      Character of the sherry affirmed: leather, clove, cooked fruits, chocolate. Sweet, but deep and generous. We also have vanilla and a touch of star anise.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, sweet and accessible. Delicately spicy. Fine but not aqueous texture, very slight bitterness on the finish. Great presence for 43%.
    • Finish
      Final a little weak, even for 43%, but consistent with the above. Spicy aftertaste.
