Nose

Malty, hay, wood notes, rather dry

Taste

Very creamy, oily and smooth, little woody, little fruity, some vanilla notes

Finish

Medium long, smooth

Comments

Despite it's lacking a little bit of fruitiness I personally like this 12yo a little more than the latest 12yo - however, definitely not in the same league as the old Macallans from the 60ies and 70ies

Nose

Rich and calm, sherry oranges, black dried plum and warm meditereanean notes.

Taste

Gentle, creamy, full body, fruity, chocolate, slightly drying oak.

Finish

Lovely warm woodspices with orange marmalade and a long lasting finish.

Comments

A friendly Macallan, Fantastic!

Ballanced sophistication.

Good, but has become too expencive.
