  1. Whisky62tom scored this whisky 84 points Member Senior

    I'm a bit surprised at the other reviews (especially in the low range). I find this whisky to be very complex and profound.

  3. The Macallan scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A great Macallan, but have to say very commercial, it's the content that count wich is very, very nice.
    • Nose
      Typical Macallan sherry notes with oranges, some dried fruit and some light peatsmoke.
    • Taste
      Oloroso sherry, dried fruit like plums and raisins, woody and drying
    • Finish
      Warm with some lovely woodspices, lingering and long

  6. dram-drinker did not rate this whisky Moderator

    Fruity nose and still a bit punchy on the palate with some leathery notes. In my opinion this is a better replica than for example the Macallan 1841. I mean better in terms of drinkable.

  7. harry scored this whisky 60 points Expert Junior

    Very weak bottling...long live the marketing!
    • Nose
      Sherry, little spicy note, beerlike aroms, very hasty, weak
    • Taste
      Sherry, wood, fast gone and then almost like water, wooden bitterness
    • Finish
      wood, less sherry, a litle bit more powerful

  8. magic_slim scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    Disappointing. Nothing that I would want to buy.
    • Nose
      Mellow and pleasant.
      Toffee, tannins, honey, malt, apple, grass and heather.
    • Taste
      Smooth and quite simple. Can not fulfill what the nose is promising. Oak and liquorice are dominating. Slightly bitter. Some malt and forest honey are present. Tastes like a young whisky.
    • Finish
      Short and simple. Oaky, slightly bitter and metallic.
