Tasting notes

From Whiskyfun.com

Colour: amber.

Nose: how did they do that? Unmistakably old sherried Macallan, with this wonderful balance that’s rarely to be found in any other malt (including modern Macallans). Many fruit liqueurs, many dried fruits and many herbs, all that being wonderfully ‘interwoven’ and hence more ‘compact’ than others. Wild strawberries, figs, orange blossom water, rosewater, white chocolate, hawthorn tea and this very peculiar smokiness that was only to be found in these old Macs. Also polished wood (precious wood, sandal, thuja…) And parsley and lovage… Better stop now because it would just go on and on.
Mouth: big and rich, maybe less entrancing than on the nose because of the slight dryness (grape pips, walnut skin) but still quite beautiful. Orange marmalade, dates, raspberry eau-de-vie and old fortified wine (Banyuls). I guess that’s the sherry talking… Touches of lemon. Finish: medium long, with a little more smoke and liquorice. Some mint and cough syrup in the aftertaste. This smokiness isn’t to be found in any modern Macallans. SGP:653 - 91 points.
