Nose: Classic sherry, lemon peel, caramel, a bit bready. Water really brings out these flavors. Water also pushes the caramel to the front. Not too deep, but quite enjoyable.
Taste: Sherried fruits, caramel corn, pound cake, blueberries. It lacks on the arrival. Rather vague.
Finish: Sherry oak and cane sugar. Sweet and decent.
This is a good whisky. It lacks complexity and can be a bit vague, but this makes for a good whisky to have when simply relaxing without paying too much attention. Overall, I prefer Macallan at an older age (the 18 year old from 1989 is great!), but this 12 year old is much, much better than the 12 year old Fine Oak Macallan. Recommended.
