Whisky Reviews for Macallan 10-year-old

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.00 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Screaming of raisins, sweet overripe grapes and apples [all moderately fermented], malty dark caramel, fudge/soft toffee, ginger cake, dank oak, cake dough, rock cakes and a touch salty with spices and some chilli heat also. There is an odd industrialness here too but theres so much else gong on, its not too distracting on the nose at least. So far, moorish and feisty.
    T: A potent mix of bitter/sweet malty/oaked sherry, the body becoming waxy and oily before sweetening a tad going into a fresher, chilli pepper finish. Theres lots more age than 10 years and the development has an admirable shape, but theres a bitter confusion in the middle leading to a muddled unpleasantness here on out.
    F: The waxy body endures with a mildly herbal, bitter>sweet finish. Caramel is minimal. The bitter confusion resides with signs of cheap spirit entering the fold.
    C: Lots to admire, not least the age but equally theres something not quite right. A good dram but one thats not in the running in a race against its peers - Glendronach 15 revival WB for instance.
