  1. Allandale scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sherry. Butterscotch. Honeyish malt character. Depth of aromas even this young age.
    • Taste
      Lots of sherry, without being  rich.  Plenty of malt. Sweetish and rounded.
    • Finish
      Satisfying, malty,gingery, becoming dry,with a hint of smoke.

    These are going up in price. Not sure why. Sure, it's a Macallan, and yes, these aren't available anymore in stores, but it wasn't that good back then and it's certainly not that good now. Drinkable though, but I would not pay USD $40 for a bottle.

  4. Andytka3 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    N- Dusting power, dried fruits, on layer of spices, clove and anise.

    P- Stiff and woody with alluring prunes, just light touch of sweetness with a lot of chewy oak.

    F- Medium, dry, oak and minty.

  5. The Macallan scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A bit sharper on the nose, more spicyness in taste and some what flat on the tongue. Never the less a good one.
    • Nose
      Matured, sherry notes, raisins, rich, vanilla, caramel, fudge, slightly pungy.
    • Taste
      Sweet with lovely fruity layers, clear woodspices (nutmeg, cinnamon etc.) some black pepper aswell.
    • Finish
      Soothing with some tutti frutti sherry notes.

  9. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very sweet and delicious. The typical Macallan flavors. Only maybe a bit too young for the top.
    • Nose
      Moist, rotten wood, forest walk after the summer rain and Grandpa's cellar.

      Dark fruit, the typical Macallan crème brûlée flavor with lots of caramel, vanilla, sherry and plum.
      Behind it, old wood, a little bit of oak and despite the low 40% a somehow tricky (disturbing?) Alcohol note or furniture polish.

      Maybe a bit too young for a drop in the top?
    • Taste
      Creamy and syrupy. Again forest walk after the rain. Dark fruit, caramel, honey and vanilla.

      Swirling in dark chocolate, coffee and oak. Delicious.
    • Finish
      Long with caramel, (milk) chocolate and sherry.
