  1. jkswift scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    For a 24year old it is astonishing how light it is. However, the fresh citrus fruit, green apple and vanilla notes are nice on the nose and are well balanced. The tast is nice but besides the vanilla and citrus notes not to complex. The Finish appears short and sharp.

    Tasted later again and need to raise my rating: Very fresh, fruity, vivid - very drinkable

    Rather average, if I tasted this blindly I would not guess it is Macallan
    • Nose
      Lots of vanilla, wheat, green apples, vegetables, not typical for Macallan actually
    • Taste
      A rather fresh and vivid, vanilla oak casks
    • Finish
      Short and burning
