Whisky Reviews for Macallan 07-year-old

12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.98 points

  1. mmaclean scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This bottle was an ebay purchase. I had been emailing over a few weeks with this guy from Riverside, Ca. USA and he agreed to meet me and do the exchange. He was a traverler who found rare bottles in duty free airports. Good find for the collection and cool guy too. Havent opened it though, anyone no what this tastes like?

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Sure it's an older bottling, but I am not sure if this is better than the standard 12 year old. It is a pleasant whisky with a nicely fruity sherry core, but just not complex enough for me to want to buy full bottle. From an full, official 5cl miniature.

  3. Bendrachm did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Very nice!
    • Nose
      Toast with strawberry jam. Fresh, sweet saw dust. Toffee. 
    • Taste
      Dry. Hot on the tongue. Orange marmelade. Maple syrup. Ginseng tea with lemon. 
    • Finish
      Nice, sweet and lasting.

    • Taste
