Member Ratings and Notes
This edition lacks the complexity and deliciousness I like in the 18.  Sherry stands out too much even for a Macallan, somehow the balance is off.  Still certainly enjoyable.   
Maply nose. Rich, bold taste with hints of tobacco.  Warm, smooth oaky finish. Classic scotch taste  
Nose of maple syrup, candied apples, long full finish. 
Sweet, caramel nose. I like the taste a lot -- a hint of chocolate in there -- but i can't call it complex, and it doesn't really crescendo to anything profound.  And the finish is fine, though predictable.  Very good, not quite magic.  
Rich, robust flavor...but oddly brief.  Some warmth.  Simple yet satisfying.  
Sweet nose. Pleasant. Has rich, warm notes. Crackly roasted caramel flavor. There is almost no finish at all. It's warm and delicious, but doesn't linger. No aftertaste, good or bad. This is smoky and sweet all at once and is very drinkable. Grade 
A classic scotch.  
 I like this. It has a slight smokey, tobacco taste to it.
