Nose
Toffee notes with some polished oak. A real depth here revealing ginger, spice and a little nutmeg.
Palate
That spice note explodes in the mouth,drying slightly on oak.
Finish
Long and lingering with a suggestion of smoke.
Comment
Yet again Macallan on form. Great interplay with oak and spice.

Nose
Mince pies, orange fruits, nutmeg and ginger.
Palate
Gentle and soft,with an initial burst of peach and apricot. Clean and sweet, and then a counter-balance from late tannins and a touch of spice.
Finish
Nicely balanced mix of fruit,spice and oak.
Comment
Everything that a Macallan should be.
