  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    An unusual Macallan ... tart and call it "unfruchtig", extremely nutty and creamy, rather dark and gloomy. Honestly not my case, nevertheless good drinkable and somehow interesting in its way ...

    • Nose
      Light caramel and delicate amber shimmer in the Premium Snifter while long "legs" adhere to the glass wall. Roasted hazelnuts and hazelnuts creamy through the nose, raisins and malted toasted cereal flavor are added. Dark yellow fruits are opulently in the foreground, the nose looks incredibly creamy and velvety. Toasted aromas, dark apricots and a hint of dried vanilla bean penetrate through block chocolate and a creamy nut mixture. The alcohol tickles from time to time in the nose and shows itself mostly from his strong side.
    • Taste
      Herb and dry spicy wood tones in combination with roasted cereal and malt voluminously flow over the tongue at first sip, wooden sharpness tingles on the palate. Apricots, apples, malt and spicy wood elements end tartly in the throat, a plump warmth pulls powerfully through the palate. Röstaromen, hazelnuts and peanuts, minimal smoke exude her bitter bitter aroma, I taste there as grapefruit and other citrus aromas? I imagine now also citrus fruits in the nose perceive. Tart and nutty blurring of taste and aftertaste.
    • Finish
      Wet foliage, dark wood tones and partly unripe walnuts exude an eternally subtle bitter aroma, the mouthfeel becomes noticeably creamier, butter flakes melt on the tongue and stimulate the saliva. The rancidity sounds slightly rancid and leaves its creamy and oily film on the tongue for a long time.
