Whisky Reviews for Macallan 1987

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.28 points

  1. autowatch092 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Dark amber
    Nose: Very strong, tobacco, prunes, orange zest, a hint of coffee and that special whiff of “dusty old cupboard” often found in aged sherry drams.
    Palate: Prunes, dried figs, tea, dark chocolate, nutmeg, dry oak (among many others).
    Finish: Extremely long, aromatic and dry
    Overall: This kind of whisky is what made The Macallan famous. A perfect balance of sherry and oak with a plethora of fruit and spice flavours. The Sherry Oak 18s are becoming harder and harder to find though, which unfortunately also shows on the price tag.

    This is one of my favorite whiskys. I think Macallan is the best sherried whisky you can buy.
