This was the 1991 bottling.
nose: the nose has a rich depth to it, opening with a bouquet of red fruit and berries, turning to a heavily oxidative monster, and finally giving way to a balanced mix of butterscotch, thin caramel, fig, and rich strawberry scones. young sherry.
palate: a little underwhelming compared to the nose. subtle caramel and apple pie.
finish: develops into full strawberries, rhubarb, some vanilla, minor oxidative note. straight-forward and easy-sipping sherry influenced whisky.
Sometimes I forget just how good this one is, and it's easy to take for granted. Some years have been misses, but this was another good Macallan. I just wish that it wasn't so expensive!
