  1. Sonett scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Sweet, flowery a bit citric. Macallan should have stayed with the 12yo from the 90's. way much better

  3. dram-drinker scored this whisky 85 points Moderator

    Has some variety of aromas and is definitely more complex than the 12yo or 15yo of the Fine Oak series - however, it will not make it into my list of favorite Macallans
    • Nose
      Malty and fruity, green apples, green bananas
    • Taste
      Oily and smooth, white pepper, a tad bitter wood notes, little sweetness and fruitiness
    • Finish
      Medium long, zesty

  4. The Macallan scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A lovely sweet fruity but warm Macallan
    • Nose
      Fruity (lychee, kiwi, citrus), slightly malty, touch of caramel and develops over time very well with lovely sweet sherry notes.
    • Taste
      Full, mellow, woody, spicy (nutmeg), sweet, Tobacco.
    • Finish
      Warm, spicy (nutmeg), fruity

  6. HunterRomario scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      The wine is beautifully matured, making it clear in the aroma that it is not a young whisky. Sweet, a mixture of honey, red-cheeked figs and dates, as well as wood, malt and chocolate, all eventually sprinkled with cinnamon. (90 b)
    • Taste
      Tastefully it is quite successful to follow on to a very promising vuni, but not without minor defects, where I rank somewhat more influence of woodiness, and when I am severely rigid, there is also a hint of bitterness in the flavor, but there is only a bad thing. Otherwise, chocolate, spices and honey. (86 b)

  7. Feusi scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Smoky sweet floral notes in the nose. Soft drink and a bit dry. Zitrisfruchtiger long finish.
