  1. The Macallan scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Quite allright but a huge difference with the nineties stuff
    • Nose
      Some sherry, light spicyness, smoky
    • Taste
      Full, floral spicyness, slightly sweet and stimulating
    • Finish
      Briny, warming, bayleave/salmiak

    I'm having a hard time with smoky. Basically, I have it apart on the older where the smoke is already broken down a bit. 9 years are actually too young for me. But in a nice round with good company you do not say no. So he gets a chance.
    I must first admit, price performance of the hammer!
    • Nose

      He starts with fruity sherry nose. Oranges, nutty with dried plums. A mild smoke hangs in damp paper with some roasted coffee mingling in the nose. Hola ... rather reserved and friendly to the nose. That's how I feel smoky too. Fine.

      Instant salty sea breeze in the mouth. There is still some vanilla / lemon hidden behind the now stronger smoke. Now I miss a little the sherry-barrel. Too bad, because of the nose I would have expected more. But he pushes neatly.
      One of the young wild ones, but not so bad.
    • Finish
      82 82
      OK, medium long finish. But even here he shows no weakness by the tender age. He's got a boom, boom! The 15 is still much more dear to me and his age also predictable.
      Medium long finish, that leaves the mouth dry.
      But barely comparable would be unfair. Well done / 82

  6. lincolnimp scored this whisky 55 points Connoisseur

    This is truly awful stuff I would not want to even pay £10 for a bottle of this.

    Drinkable, almost.

    Too thin on the palate with a manufactured taste that cannot just be down to the cask can it?

  8. vis scored this whisky 81 points Member Senior

    This one has a very light body due to the low abv.
    • Nose
      Sherry, peat, chocolate, orange peel. Little musty.
    • Taste
      A bit shy, orange peel, peat, chocolate again.
    • Finish
      Orange peel, cherry sweets, musty.

  9. larswehmeier scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Mild aromatic smoke. Clear cocoa. Oranges. Wood. Some honey.
    • Taste
      Mild on the tongue. First, the smoke is present. Slightly ashy. But then comes again the delicious cocoa. A few raisins. Fresh plums. Surprisingly spicy despite the low alcohol content.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long. There will be smoke and some spicy oak.
