An absolute delight. Smokey and smooth, rich and refined. This is the scotch your grandfather would be proud to see you drinking during/after a long day at the office.

I always LOVE the Macallan-12, but we only have the GOLD/etc... series in Canada now. I have to go to the USA to smuggle a few bottles back at 62$US/bot. Alas, I have to supplement it with Glendronach-12 (or Aberlour-12) from time to time, to avoid depleting my bottles to quickly !

Tasted this one by chance and could not get it out of my mind - an incredible contrast to the peats I was familiar with (e.g. Laphroaig). Lucky for me The Whisky Exchange delivers to the antipodes! Unluckily I have one stashed away for the boy as a coming of age gift ...

You just want to finish the bottle and go to get another one! That how good it is. For me at least..

Plain Jane to me, not much complexity. Overpriced, but decent quality Macallan.
- Mikko, 19th Jul '13
Being someone who is just developing a collection of whiskey/scotch, I just purchased a bottle of Macallan 12. Delightfully smooth start, with a hint of the sherry. A warm finish, with no fire. Of the half dozen bottles in my cache, it is IMO the most pleasant.

The first Macallan i ever tasted,,,& it won't be the last. A lovely dram, & a unique "Macallan" taste.

I have tasted the Glenlivet 15 year (French Reserve),the Glenffidch 12 year, Johnnine Walker Black, and now Macallan 12 year old! All are vastly distinct in taste,aroma,personality if I may. If i had to choose my personal favorite,I perfer Glenlivet 15 year (French Reserve).... A mature man of taste> Enjoy my friend.

Very nice and easy to drink, lovely sherry sweetness but can't help thinking that it would be better at 46%-48% alc. needs a bit more ooomph on the finish.

I love this, even over the 18, for it's sweet nose
- Fred, 19th Nov '11
Great sherry nose with plenty of fruitcake and dates. Tastes delicious, rich sherry, dried fruits and subtle malt. The finish is good with a little spice but comes up a bit short. Perhaps not the best sherry cask malt out there these days but still the benchmark against which others should be judged.

I wish they would bring back the sherry oaks on a regular basis.
- anonymous, 15th Aug '11
Managed to pick up a bottle in Thailand and very happy with this whisky nice and smooth.
- Derek, 31st Oct '10
This whiskey is my second ultimate experience, exceeded only by the 18 year old version
- Dr John, 29th Oct '10
I'm tempted, would you say this is worth the extra money over the Macallan Fine Oak and Sherry Oak expressions?
- Manu, 19th Jul '10
I love this one, the sherry makes it smooth and sweet, a hint of smoke and floure, this is by far my favorite 12 yo I've tasted, I will always keep a bottle of this at the house, and the price is good
- anonymous, 17th Mar '10
A wonderful whisky, but drink it before heading into the peaty and smoky Islay or the powerful Skye. Otherwise its subtlties will go underappreciated. I love The Macallans fullness of flavor.
- Aaron McNaught, 30th Jan '10
Neat or the rocks, nothing compares to Macallan! Simply the best. Period!
