13 yo – First fill sherry butt – “Ginger beer and pickled walnuts” – 59.7%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright gold
Nose: Ginger and nuts are present, water brings out mixed spices and citrus notes.
Palate: Caramel, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, lime, a hint of pepper.
Finish: Long and spicy.
Overall: A quite unusual but very enjoyable Macallan most probably from a Fino sherry cask. The richness in aromatic spice flavours is well balanced with fresh citrus notes.
Rating: 85/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
