    Delicious, sherry, oak, rather pleasant sweetish, with notes of plums, raisins, would buy a bottle

    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
      Malty, hay, wood notes, rather dry
    • Taste
      Very creamy, oily and smooth, little woody, little fruity, some vanilla notes
    • Finish
      Medium long, smooth

    A friendly Macallan, Fantastic!
    • 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.
