Whisky Reviews for Macallan 1978

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.34 points

  1. Helgo scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Yesterday then tried again after the election and he is simply different from today's Macallanabfüllungen. The nose alone has so much more to offer and a lot more depth. I do not know how much Paxarette was involved here. Actually, I do not care. But for a reasonable course I would definitely buy such a bottle. Thanks again to Heidjer for the sample, which is now almost empty.

  2. Waykid scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It ain't bad but just too extreme in it's dryness and somehow a bit brittle to my taste. An interesting and personal one though: I can easily see why someone could really love this one.
    • Nose
      Savoury, dry cake, dry red  wine, very dry sherry, earthy sounds and autumn leaves, moss. Malt vinegar, cowberry, blackcurrant leaves, apply oak, sweetens a bit, tobacco, antique leather, strong black tee. Dry and bitterish.
    • Taste
      Strong with stock cube, winy dry sherry, leather, bitter oak, cough syrup. Bitter dark chocolate, coffee, medicinal and herbal.
    • Finish
      Dry and middle long.

    As often Macallan doesn`t seem to suit my taste. I smells to much like russian chocolate.
