N: Nice, wonderful fruit notes lead - deep and powerful sherry with a good apple presence on top. Light touch of cinnamon and a slight whisper of nutmeg. Plenty of wood and a lightly mineral presence. A faint wisp of smokiness. Light hint of grapes and maybe some white wine. A little figgy presence also. 

 

P: Mouth-coating and leading with a nice mix of light white pepper, woodiness and mint; a faint wisp of smoke on the roof of the mouth. A little light molasses note, some figs again, a touch of oranges adding brightness. Slight lemony note as well, but this is not overly citric. A little jammy.

 

F: Nice. Old wood, with a little zip of raspberries for a second. Slightly minty top note, some figs and a bit of apple skin.

 

Old Macallan is so fun. A great mix of old and new styles.
