    Ohhhh what did the guys do back then what was lost today, or did it come from the barrels? I do not know but a really great drop! 94 points
    • Nose
      Oranges and a fruitiness combined with an almost creamy sweetness spoil my nose. A touch of fresh apple juice from sweet red apples underline the oak, which slowly rises from the dram with a few fresh walnuts. Tobacco flavors mix with heather honey in the background. Oranges and oak stick to the palate. The Macallan character runs through the whole malt. I am in love with this nose. Complex but always with clarity, the malt releases its aromas. Malagasy and toffee cream slowly merge with the oak. The constantly changing aroma is clean and round. I have to try a mouthful.
    • Taste
      unlikely oily and creamy, the malt spreads throughout the mouth. The oranges taste like freshly picked. The sweetness is slowly supplanted by oak and spice. A tingling, not peppery, rather tingling the oranges are slowly immature, with a delicate bitterness announces chocolate. Still heavy, creamy, oily, almost like syrup, the malt floats over my tongue. Traces of pipe tobacco gather under my tongue.
    • Finish
      Woody he wikt in the first moment, walnuts and espresso always seem through. The tannins seem to be forever in the mouth. Even now it looks creamy, as if you had eaten a spoonful of dessert with good chocolate and oranges.
