Whisky Reviews for The Real Mackenzie 20-year-old

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.27 points

  1. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    35ml / ¥280 @ Karasuma Bijutsukan.

    Appearance: Pale amber color.

    Nose: Oak, vanilla, toffee, malt sugar.

    Palate: Tannic flavor of old oak, old bottle effect happening too, honey, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla.
    Soft, smooth.

    Finish: Slightly bitter, tannic, oak. Peppery.

    With Water: Needs a drop to open up.

    Overall: Quite nice indeed. What a bargain for the price. Had one in a highball as well, which was superb—though very oaky.

  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Solid, drinkable and even reasonably interesting blend with its tropical notes, but a bit too much grain and bitterness for 1-2 more points.
    • Nose
      Compared to other old blends, the grain is quite noticeable here, slightly artificial caramel candies with honey and sweet malt, banana chips, vanilla, freshly painted oak, coconut, marzipan
    • Taste
      Hui, interesting introduction, a bit snappy, unfortunately, banana juice, coconut cream, very oily, tastes like half a nice, creamy rum, lots of grain in it, but it gives a mega sweetness, papaya, fennel, hint of leather, pear
    • Finish
      Coconut oil, blossom honey, cereals, grain, medium length, still a bit biting
