Whisky Reviews for Macallan 07-year-old
13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.61 points
- 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?
- 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.
- Very nice!
Toast with strawberry jam. Fresh, sweet saw dust. Toffee.
Dry. Hot on the tongue. Orange marmelade. Maple syrup. Ginseng tea with lemon.
Nice, sweet and lasting.
- The aroma gives expectations to all the flavors. A great young Macallan who's got a lot to offer.
Soft, malt, sherry, young, apples, citrus, dried apricots very volatile.
Sweet, dried fruit, warm, round and very pleasant.
Dry with fruity wine influences, firm and slightly drying
- Pleasant, light, not 'ripe'.
The different layers are not well connected.
On the nose slender, smooth in the taste, at the finish much oak wood and a little 'sticky'.
