Nose: Lots of toffee, lots of sherry, a fantastic eggnog note, cinnamon, brandy soaked fruits, black pepper, a hint of salt, sweet oak, vanilla.

Taste: Sherry, buttercream frosting, toffee, a bit of spice, deep and concentrated fruits like sweet juicy apples and cherries. There's a hint of dryness that keeps the dominating sweetness in check.

Finish: Fruity, spicy, with a good amount of wood.

What a fantastic Macallan. It's so refreshing since my last encounters with the Fine Oak range. The vintage on this one is 1989, and wow is it good. I'm interesting in trying the vintages from the 90s even though I've heard of some decline in those bottlings. This 1989 is worth seeking out.
