     thought this was excellent, a very luscious whisky, at the price far too drinkable.

    As a general rule I think Macallan is overated but this is definately a good one.
    • Nose
      Leather, sherry, sweet fruits, chocolate orange, peaches.
    • Taste
      Almond, fudge, orange, caramel cake.
    • Finish
      Medium length, very smooth.
