    Macallan? 'glasgow distillers'

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

    In my opinion, a perfect whisky, slightly smoky, impressive Macallan ...

    Just lovely...

      SMELL warm, sweet with butterscotch, aromatic heather, orange peel and smoky charcoal.
    • Taste
      100 100
      PALATE Creamy, complex, red berries, ginger, coffee, milk chocolate and candied orange slices. Initially spicy, then vanilla, roasted aromas and sour notes like gooseberries. Smoke in the background with sherry.
    • Finish
      99 99
      FINISH Coffee with vanilla ice cream and some fruit with noticeable smoke. Long, very long, very, very long. An impressive finish with sweet creamy toffee that lays over the palate and even the lips.

    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 to the touch with a little orange and a hint of vanilla.

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

    Soft, slightly fruity with sherry and with a not intrusive but always noticeable oak. Tart and sweet, at the end again with a little sherry and raisins, slightly tart, hint of nutty, very long finish.

    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

  10. JollyRoger scored this whisky 97 points Expert Senior

    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)
