  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 244 bottles from cask no. 1117
    A rare refill sherry hogshead of 18yr old Macallan, a rich gold in colour with long legs and excellent beading. At first, a mild nose of bruised apples, then baked apples and brown sugar. A hint of matchbox striker, now madeirised with a dusting of chocolate and a rich, baked apple tart. At natural strength this is hot! Plenty of coconut, rich spices and mild licorice. With water, a fresher feel – some apple Chewits, Appletizer and burnt sugar. The mid-palate brings shows an oiliness with caramel, burnt orange peel and some lovely floral notes. The finish is fennel and licorice, mouthfilling with chocolate and aniseed lingering.
