Whisky Reviews for Macallan 1970

    Seriously, I know most of you guys rated this before you tasted it, but couldn't you just pretend you have tried and just... make up a note? What a shame.

    Nose: dates, orange, gunpowder, peanut, raisin, balsamic, cedar, nutmeg. Typical Macallan, less sulphur but still. The nose is very light and ambiguous.

    Palate: cedar, cranberries, orange spread, plums, truffle, peanut, almond, dirt, rubber, clove, nutmeg.

    Body: medium, oily an jelly-like. Not sure if it is balanced, too much sherry notes, I honestly cannot tell the difference from it to any 20-years-old cream sherry, but such cream sherry is sold for around $100, I believe. This is also kind of viscous and tastes dead.

    Finish: mid-length, sherry, rubber and berries, weak.

    A weak malt that tastes more like 3rd or 4th tier make. I know Macallan's reputed for it's marketing, just did not anticipate their old bottling 25 yo to be such... what's the word for it... boring. Any modern 18 surely prevails it in strength and even complexity.
