I've tasted Macallan 18 year old sherry oak many times and this ain't it. So what is it? Well, I might conservatively call it attractively colored golden sputum masquerading as a fine scotch.
Buyer beware: Avoid the 50ml "Macallan 18" at all costs.
The nose smells like Bushmills' Irish whisky (which I happen to hate due to its lack of sophistication and bitter alcohol-laden palate). This little bottle of "Macallan" also tastes quite a bit like cheap Irish whisky. I don't even detect any scotch flavor here.
What a complete and utter rip off. I bought seven little bottles and they are worthless as Christmas gifts to anyone who has even a rudimentary appreciation of fine scotch.
The box is attractive and the cork is classy. In other words, this 50ml looks great and tastes like cheap Irish whisky. It is the perfect Christmas gift for someone who will never open it, much less taste it, or for a person who has no taste at all to speak of and will be impressed by name only.
