Macallan 12 traditional (Sherry Cask).

Lovely amber color. Nutty, spicy and sherry notes on the nose, with the slightest hint of a toffee, and apples. Nice sweet taste full of fresh fruit, lots of leather and apples. The finish is nice and strong with a decent kick of chili peppers, but the sherry influence is quite evident.


Very enjoyable makes me want to try some of the older bottling of their sherry oak casks.

Had the Macallan 18 1992 last night. While the descriptor used above for the Macallan 12 would be used for the 18, let me say that this is a much richer version of it. The nuttiness revealed itself as candied walnuts.
