N: Trademark Macallan. Sherry all over the nose with a light dash of raisins, toffee, light aromas of roasted nuts, subdued orange zest and even a touch of vanilla creaminess. Light marmite influence as well.
P: Rich, full mouthfeel with a hint of molasses and a bit of marmite; a little sticky toffee pudding. Big, rich sherry notes with lots of fdried fruit and a bit of light cinnamon spice. Nice gentle heat, light honey sweetness. Again, a slight vanilla creamy quality to the palate, but this is all about sherry (and a touch of marmite).
F: Warm initially, dried fruits and a bit of citrus at the end which balances with a light wood influence and a bit of dark chocolate.
Macallan doesn't make 'em quite like this anymore. For me, this is a classic, textbook Macallan in character and style. The richness of the Macallan spirit balances perfectly with the cask influence around this age.
