Color: Copper penny

Nose: Honey butter, oak, soft cherry fruit mingled with plum, undertone of fresh tobacco leaf.

Palate: Orange caramel, splash of hot sauce, poppyseed muffin.

Finish: Medium, hints of flan, with a bite of dried lemon peel and ginger.

A fine 12 year. Sweet with a depth of citrus and grape. It drinks well, if a little hot on the tongue. Good late summer dram if you prefer the medium-heavy malts.

@WmRamsey, well either they changed the formula, or you found a bad bottle, or you had a garlicky Greek gyros before your sampling ? You said it was a fine 12-year, but you gave it 1.5 stars ? Mac 12 is one of my favorite go-to malts, and IMO a good entry-level malt. But everyone's taste is unique ... just a little confused myself ... and now a bit worried about replacing my near-empty bottle.

Maybe the rating was a mistake?...

Yes! Glad you asked. I wrote it on my freaking iPad and hit post before i could fix rating. The Macallan 12 deserves at least an 8-9!

@WmRamsey, well of course please disregard my comments. You can probably send a note to the Connosr Team, who can surely fix the error.

@AboutChoice: loved your garlic comment. I'm glad you pointed out the bum rating. Thanks! Next time, I'll use a real keyboard.
