A couple of years ago I experienced a drop in flavor in Mac 12 with my last couple of bottles here in the Northwest, so I have been avoiding it in favor of Alberlour 16 DC, HP 18, and some other favorite sherried drams.
I thought I would try it again, so I picked up a bottle of the 12 yr sherry, and it really is quite good. I am sipping it as I write, and I find it richer, and fuller than my last tasting 2 year ago.
I am really enjoying it. Very tasty.
Nose: honey, sweet, citrus, sherry, vanilla.
Palate: full, sweet, creamy, honey, vanilla, orange, spices, pepper.
Finish: sweet, long with some pepper/heat.
Certainly, much better than my memory of it from a couple of years back.
I enjoyed it so much I went back this morning and got two more bottles to stockpile from the same case.
Has anyone else noticed a change recently in Macallan 12 sherrry.
