Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Pain aux raisins and brioche, with some cleansing grapey notes and toasty spice.
Palate: Cinnamon and boozy raisins. Rich texture, mouthfilling, but still precise and clean. Easy to drink.
Finish: Boozy apple crumble, with cinnamon and milk chocolate.

I mean, it''s pretty good. It hits all the right notes, the problem is that it is quite evidently supposed to be the same as the 12 it replaced and it comes up way short and carries a bigger price tag to boot. even as good as the 12 is, for the 92 they were asking here in Ontario it was alot, and the 100 they are asking for this is wah too much. not a bad dram but doesn''t live up to the 12 it''s supposed to replace
This is a very different experience to the Gold which is worth avoiding. All be it without an age statement, its still a very enjoyable smooth single malt.
Macallan, Macallan, what are you doing. Weak nose and thin taste, this will not end good.
Stupendous cinnamon spiced nose. Just pour a dram and sniff this and you'll think its Christmas. Palate is surprisingly a bit thin after the nose but sweetie shop delicious nonetheless. Finish is short but satisfying. The best value of the range I think.
Quality apart, it is very difficult to navigate through the Macallan's range now. Don't know whether this was a good move as far as the marketing and Macallan's afficionados is concerned.
