    My favourite. Unfortunately now a victim of Macallan''s lunatic marketing strategy, and consequently the price just keeps rocketing. That said, by pulling this Macallan have forced me to broaden my horizons and I''m finding some real gems elsewhere in Speyside and even beyond. D''you think that''s why they did it?

    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.

    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.
