  1. funhouse scored this whisky 95 points Member Senior

    Deep full body, rich of aroma. A little oak, plenty of sweet sherry, chocolate. Like cotton for the mouth. Sweet spiciness for long time in taste. big and tasty.

  2. Luigisim scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very pleasent, similar to the Macallan 1984 15yo but less smokey and a bit too sweet.

    Great experience but overpriced.

  3. Allandale scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A slippery body.
    • Nose
      Appetizing, yet rich, oaky, raisiny aromas.
    • Taste
      Flavors establish  a gap nonetheless, and pace themselves. Perfumy notes. Chocolate fudge. Malty middle.
    • Finish
      Clean, crisp, gingery spiciness in the finish.

    Very drinkable and enjoyable - is really close to the good ol' style Macallans from the 60ies and 70ies - Great!
    • Nose
      Chocolate, toffee, sherry wood, dried fruits, raisins - goes into typical old style Macallan
    • Taste
      Creamy, smooth, sweet oak wood, toffee, coffee, toasted bread, dark fruits, chocolate
    • Finish
      Medium long and warm, still with this nice chocolate cappuccino taste
