  4. The Macallan scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Tasted as a work in progress at 57%. (May 1999)

     

    Color: white wine

     

    Nose: Vanilla, pancake aroma`s and rum notes (reduced: malty and tropical flavors - coconut and pina colada).

     

    Palate: Quite light, smooth and sweet (reduced: fruity/woody flavors and again some tropical rum cocktail).

     

    Tasty and firm, with a rum like note in the back.

     

    Comment: Finally they are back again with a nice Rum-wood expression from Springbank.

  5. hsmithjr scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Better than I expected.  Still, no substitution for the standard.
    • Nose
      Sweet and smoky. Green apples and pears. Fresh cut grass. Perhaps some brine.
    • Taste
      Toasted marshmallow with banana and sweet pears. Soft toffee with Bavarian creme. The alcohol is definitely there with a presence, but not overwhelming.
    • Finish
      Salty and sweet. Black pepper and cinnamon. Fairly long.
