    Very nice soft dram
    • Nose
      Fine sweet sherry nose. Sweet fruit, chocolate
    • Taste
      Very soft fruity taste. Sweet with notes of chocolate. Forest fruits. The relatively high ABV is not noticeable.
    • Finish
      Soft creamy long finish.

  9. The Macallan scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A quicky!

    N: fruit and sweetness

    P: creamy, spicy and coats your cheeks

    F: warming, spicy with some fruityness

    C: I may not like all the BN's but this one is quite allright. However if I got the chance to review this one on a different moment, there's a good chance I'll have to edit my rating.
