  6. dram-drinker scored this whisky 86 points Moderator

    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

  7. The Macallan scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    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.

  10. domani scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    My first Macallan; very exciting - 01.05.2014
    • Nose
      First of all stinging alcohol note, then fruit notes, pineapple, dates, caramel
    • Taste
      Sherry, caramel, malt, fruits hold back
    • Finish
      Lang
