Member Ratings and Notes
Smoke and lots of other weird stuff -- rubbery notes for sure, and definite sherry all over the place. I was surprised to discover this is a Macallan -- it is definitely not a traditional flavor profile for a Mac!
Musty.  Lots of nut flavors.  Hard to describe, but I like it.
Carmel and vanilla nose, sherry and molasses, slightly oily long finish.

n: Musty sherry.  Decent.


p:  Sweet and dirty.  Just like I like my... ah nevermind.  as a cask strength it's a bit better balanced then the Mac sherry bombs.  I'd drink it again.


7/16/13 - Raised rating from B- to B

ahh, cask strength Macallan with great sherry depth and not too much of the floral notes that can spring up at times.  A great example and it almost got an A-.
Sherried with some tobacco smoke but a bit too sulphured for my taste.
