Macallan was the first single malt I ever bought. Just as back then, I am very fond of the heavy sherry tone in this one. It's full bodied and coats the entire mouth with it's smooth oily texture. Figs, dried fruit and apricot with a toffee and vanilla finnish makes this dram a very enjoyable one. It is also a perfect malt for beginners, especially with a dash of water in it.

I forgot to mention that it does have a slight bitterness to it in the finish, which (for me) is a small but noticeable minus. It would score a bit higher without it.
