This whisky is the best I have ever tasted. I am sure that I will change my mind several times since I am rather new to the world of whisky. Never the less, I bought this bottle at the Glenturret Distellery (The Famous Grouse Experience) in Scotland in October.

When I first opened the bottles and smelled the content, I was sure that it was an excellent whisky. The scent of candy, nuts and fruits in all variatins go well together. The finish has a slight hint of cinnamon.

All in all, an excellent whisky. Another bottle will be ordered as soon as this ones empty.

If you like the Mac 12yr that much, you are going to LOVE what else Scotch whisky has in store for you!

@Victor - I think you may be a bit disappointed with the 18y - not that you won't fully enjoy it BUT you will not enjoy it that much more than the 12y. In other words, IMHO, the extra 6y for this particular finishing did not seem to add a huge amount to the spirit (certainly relative to the triple price increase.... :-( ).

BTW - I tend to let my whisky open up by air rather than water - I don't have a problem letting them sit for an hour or even more. I found the Mac12 became nice and yummy after about two to three hours.... :-)
