Whisky Reviews for Macallan 1993 TWC

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.30 points

  1. Segens scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Continuation of the blind tasting 16th of 24 drams. I guess the dram has 46% is 13 years old and is from the Highlands. The dram is OK but I am missing the special of it. Very easy to drink probably to its low level of alcohol but nothing that knocks my socks off.Ok Macallan and 22 years haha Never ever expected and very disappointing therefore!
    • Nose
      Bourbon Cask again! Some very decent smoke & peat influence but more fruity and quite balanced in the nose. I have oranges & honey but nothing else to be fair.
    • Taste
      Puh I have not much in the mouth. It is not negative but there is no real flavor that stands out the rest. 
    • Finish
      The finish is a bit bitter but not too dramtic. Some fermented grapes but still nothing special

    So who likes Ostfriesentee, this whisky can certainly win a lot. It should be somewhat stronger for my taste, with the gentle profile goes well with the soft flavors.

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      A light alcohol note accompanies a large basket full of ripe apples and malt at the beginning. Shortly thereafter, the apples turn green and a smell of cooking (not in the machine but in the saucepan) rises. After a while, it seems "dirty", the notes remain basically the same. After an extremely long life the whole thing calmed down, honey and pears are now clearly recognizable. Warms up first strong caramel before a strange, honey-soaked muff rises, dirty laundry this time. This, however, disappears shortly thereafter.
    • Taste
      Apple honey, with tart herbs, after a short time in the mouth rather black tea, which pushes back more clearly in the foreground while the apples disappear into nothingness. The mouthfeel is rather thin, the alcohol takes a lot of time before it pushes behavior.
    • Finish
      The finish then begins rather harsh. The sweet honey notes are there, but herbes outweighs clearly, in the end the honey stays much longer on the palate. The impression of black tea with honey and a drop of cream is incredibly realistic. Overall, the finish is medium, with the reheating fails here.
