Member Ratings and Notes
Sherry and chocolate nose. Sherry, sherry, sherry, yum. One dimensional, but it's got that one thing right.
Nose yells sherry. Palate is sherry sherry sherry. One-note and overwhelming in that regard, but that regard is very good.
Slightly sweet, woody nose. I realize this is cask strength, but the alcohol really overpowers this one, there's just not enough else going on here to provide balance. Water is a must, and does reveal the malt and sweetness one associates with Macallan. Overall it's pretty good, I just can't think of a compelling reason to seek it out; there are so many more interesting or well-balanced options.
N: Sherry, pleasant. T: Bold, tasty, honey. F: Hot, nutmeg, oaky.
Caramel nose, heavy syrupy caramel taste. Candy, Mmmm. Warm and soothing, finish that coats the throat with a layer of delicious lacquer.
Strong, sweet, spice, clove, sherry, woodsy warm and lingering…good, good, good.
Sherry and spice, just like Macallan cask strength.
Deep sweet sherry and wood resin.  A sherry bomb that rivals Glenfarclas and Aberlour.  The three are very different but all are VERY bold sherry delights.  Just makes the B+ side.

Tasted blind:

N:  Sweet sherry with tangy fruit quality.  This is very malty with bits of vanilla

P: Sickly sweet on the palate with stewed fruits

F: Kind of toasty (bread) and a salty astringency



n: nice! cherry chocolates, angel food cake.


t: dense body with vanilla oak, cloves and cinnamon. Full red fruit/berries, a tasty sherry bomb.
