Whisky Reviews for Macallan 08-year-old

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.10 points

  1. WhiskyFan2112 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Today I try Macallan. This is from a session from a local festival which featured this bottle plus a 1992 Linkwood, a 1994 Glen Moray and a 1992 Glen Scotia. Some Macallan I've had were very good and some others not so much. Let's see how his tastes.

    Nose is dark chocolate, figs, light smoke, and some earthy notes lingering.

    Palate shows chocolate shavings, Manuka honey, machine oils, mild pepper, and a dash of salt.

    Finish is light smoke, faint Manuka honey, some salt, bit of pepper, lingering industrial metals and oils.

  2. Kensay did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Coffee beans, honey, wine notes and dried fruits. Unfortunately, the sample is quite hooked by sensations, it’s difficult to judge more
