    I got this as a Christmas present and was very excited as I had never tried it. It is very very good, but lacks a strong finish. It pales to the regular 12 year Macallan and isn't nearly as good. I do like it and will enjoy it. I would give 4 1/2 stars if I could.

    A Friday night special. It's decent without being particularly exciting. Some sweet sherry and bourbon wood, a bit of body but not much complexity. Nothing to complain about but nothing outstanding.

    A very deep and fruity number with plenty of swetness.

    I'm no connoisseur but this is tasty and smooth. I tried the 40% version, trying to find the 43% version. But a little to pricey. But thats typical of Macallan.

    Excellent whisky. The nose has lots of wood, with red apple, rich honey, nutmeg and a whiff of seashore brine. The taste is equally rich, with dry oak and caramel dominating, leading to a long, spicy finish with a touch of heat on the tongue. A fantastic expression of Macallan.

    Personally speaking, I think it a little light and lacking complexity - paradise lost for me at the moment with regard to Macallan, though this is a step in the right direction...looking forward

    The best whiskey you could get in this price range and even above. Considering I've tasted whiskeys that are priced 500 euros and above this one is simply the best.
