N: Asian sauce extravaganza! P: A very unusual profile for Macallan (in my experience), still on the dry side but the typical chocolate is replaced with BBQ and venison, moo shoo pork (with requisite plum sauce), and.. F: I swear there's some peat in here!� Or a convincing impostor!� Wow!� Glad I have another bottle of this in my collection!� I may have to go touch it inappropriately after writing this review.�
A heavy sherry bomb but soft raisins and a classic floral perfume that says pre-'90s Macallan. Palate is a bit lighter than the nose suggests. Finish is shortish to slightly medium. Could have been better on the palate.
Nose of giant caramel-toffee apples. Along with lots of great, sweet, rich sherry, which dominates the palate. It's quite sweet sherry, and this is one of the sweeter whiskies I've tasted. Finish is medium-length, but the best part -- part of the reason being that the intensity here doesn't "stick" too long and get annoying. Instead, it ends arguably prematurely, but rather than that being a disappointment, it makes me just want another tasty sip. That's gotta count for something. A 100% hits-the-spot-when-you-want-a-sherried-whisky-whisky. Why did I let go of the other bottle I found of this? I must be a very nice, super-awesome human being.
Sweet Macallan, like candy. Nose is smooth, rum-like, with berries. The palate is smooth, a slight bitterness. The finish turns even sweeter, sugar cane, caramelized sugar. Definitely and after dinner treat.
