  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 90 points Photo Moderator

    Not so heavily sherried like the Macallan 18yo OB from that decade but more fresh, fruity and simple but very drinkable - great
    • Nose
      Dry hay, honeydew, green apples, cocoa powder - not bad
    • Taste
      Very oily, creamy, fruity, apples, citrus fruits, spices, hints of ginger, subtle sweetness, fine oak wood - very good
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, creamy
