Tasting Notes

Nose

Rich. Fruit cake, marzipan and lots of beeswax notes, a highly polished floor of a stately pile. The sweetness is akin to dried apricot and sultana; brazil nut, heather, dark chocolate and resin.

Palate

Clean with light tannin. More citric elements here than on the nose. Black banana, dried fruit, liquorice. I prefer its boldness when neat, but water takes it back to the almond area and reveals slightly more oiliness.

Finish

Gentle. Walnut whip. Great balance.

Comment

A classic Macallan.
