This is my first taste of Macallan after hearing many great reviews about it. A good friend of mine who actually introduced me into the world of whisky is a great believer in the quality of this particular distilleries products. This is one of the first things in this field I must say I disagree entirely with him about.
Nose: Strong scent of vanilla and toffee with a touch of oak. No complexity here though which is rather disappointing
Palate: A sweet and buttery sensation engulfs my tongue. The body is smooth and very light lacking any real sustenance.
Finish: Short finish which I must say was kind of expected after a taste. The body just doesn't hold up long enough.
The lack of complexity in this whisky has really disappointed. Its a relatively expensive scotch and my personal view is that it rides on its distilleries fame and the reputation of its older brothers.
One thing I must say for this dram is that it is very very drinkable. It goes down a real treat and was much appreciated after a hard days work.
