    The first thing that popped out to me was the mouth feel. The spice and sherry really come alive on the first sip – it's pretty smooth. Just a hint of smoke and a complete absence of peat, which I'm glad about. Good scotch to introduce American whiskey drinkers to. Good value.

    An exceptional Scotch, especially for the price. I would 100% suggest either letting your ice melt just a bit or adding just a drop or 2 of water to open the flavours up

    This is a smooth whisky with little spice. Do as the Scots do and add a few drops of water - really opens up the flavor!

    I have noticed less of a vanilla or toffee nose and more spice. I seem to have noticed this just before the changeover to new packaging.

    Having now tried a wide variety of Scotches, I keep coming back to Macallan 12 as the standard. It’s a classic for a reason. They got it 100% right. Every sip goes through a little journey of flavors and ends with a pleasant bit of fruit taste that sits at the back end. No harshness, no little bit that sticks out as not quite there. It’s my absolute favorite and has a permanent spot in my collection.

    It’s simply one of the best whiskies I have ever tried in my life. It’s perfect with a dash of cold water only

    Wet, mossy forest aroma. Sweet, smoky and spicy on the tongue. Very smooth and very good. I'm in love.

    Oh this be a wonderful scotch. When the bottle is empty, your eyes will tear up. The smoky sweetness lingers very pleasantly (especially if you have a moustache) ;)

    The nose on Macallan 12 smells like a band aid with hints of sulfure. However, the palate is viscous, deep, and rich just like a fine red wine with a steak.

    An excellent 12 year. My preference for a libation.

    Simply the best 12 year old scotch you can buy. I love trying all different scotchs and I keep coming back to this one as the gold standard. The less people drink sherry, the more rare this will become. I forget how good it is, then I get a bottle for Christmas and fall in love all over again. I also got the double cask strength one and the 12 year old regular one is miles better. Absolutely brilliant!
