  1. Totoro scored this whisky 69 points Expert Senior

    Ew, sulphur alert! Definitely a gassy, cabbage-like top note that I've also previously encountered in some Tomatins, Tomintouls and Juras. This could stem from spirit sulphur or sherry casks treated with sulphur candles; since the Macallan distillate is usually immaculate, I'm going with the latter: a deficient cask. The nose is pretty much ruined by this, I'm afraid to say. You can still detect the Macallan distillery character behind the sulphury off note, but it's a struggle.
    Sadly, the palate is affected as well, especially the initial attack. Pity, really, because this has a good body and the juiciness that is typical for the age.
    The finish is lackluster as well, missing any and all cocoa / coffee notes. Instead, there's a residual alcoholic whiff along some sweetness and slight acidity.

    I really wanted to like this, especially since I absolutely adore the 18-year-old Speymalt bottlings, but in all honesty, this is crap.

  7. Goethe scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    A very easy going Macallan, no edges, no stright direction, everything is very easy. There is almost no oak at all.Concerning price/performance ratio: 7/10
    • Nose
      Citrus fruits, vanilla, hints of caramel.
    • Taste
      Some dried yellow fruits, citrus, some vanilla. 
    • Finish
      Short. Hints of vanilla and apricots.

  8. Bruce Wayne scored this whisky 78 points Member Junior

    • Nose
      First association: Obstler - apple, pear. Fresh and fruity, some malt and spice. Maybe a little honey.
    • Taste
      light and fruity, quite dry and fast becoming very spicy. Slight nuttiness on the finish.
    • Finish
      Short to medium long, nutty to slightly bitter
