    Macallan? 'glasgow distillers'

    1st fill sherry
    bit peated and light hint of sulfur, but not unpleasant ...
    caramel, chocolate and even some tar ...

  3. TP-Darknight scored this whisky 97 points Expert Senior

    In my opinion, a perfect whisky and a lot speaks for an excellent, slightly smoky, impressive Macallan ...

    warm in smell, sweet with butter, orange peel and light smoke from an outgoing candle. The taste is creamy, complex, notes of sherry and orange, coffee, milk chocolate and caramel. In the finish milk coffee, vanilla ice cream with sweet creamy toffee and fruity with pale smoke.

    Just lovely...

    needs some air and time ...
    after 30 min. in the nosing glass:

    Elegant, balanced and very pleasant with impressions of nuts (walnuts), sherry and fine wood notes. Aromatic, slightly fruity and warm in the sensation with a little orange and a hint of vanilla.

    Aromatic with oak, sherry, spicy wood notes, hint of spicy,
    light sherry sweetness but in balance with oak.
    Balanced, here too a hint of orange, spices, fine wood notes.

    Soft, slightly fruity with sherry and with an unobtrusive but always noticeable oak. Tart-sweetish, at the end again with a little sherry and raisins, slightly tart, hint of nutty, fading away very long.

    An elegant, successful and a "designed" whisky.

    The 26-year-old and 27-year-old in direct comparison: https://fosm.de/tasting-prometheus-26yo-vs-27yo/
    • Nose
      Mild Sherrynoten and light smoke, a little fruit and orange, I think so too. Over time, he also changes without water. Very complex. A very interesting combination. Now chocolate is also added. And raisins.
    • Taste
      Mock and chocolate, vanilla and pepper. Mild smoke. A lot of power for the 47%. The dark fruits and oranges are also noticeable. A little reminds me of the marmalade.
    • Finish
      Long mellow finish, fruity, little oak especially for 26 years, light nut notes

    This is definitely NOT a distillery bottling, as this Glasgow distiller doesnt exist 5 years yet and this whisky is 26 years old.  Casks bought/given somewhere else and bottled. As are the next 3 bottlings: this is the first in a series of four (26, 27, 28, 29 yo)
