Taste of the macallan 12

Color: then macallan 12

Deep gold Nose: Strong raisin, currant, plum and baking-spice notes, with hints of honey and heather as it opens up

So, there’s really very little to complain about in this bottle. Fans of bolder Islay whiskies may find it a bit too easy-going, and scotch drinkers who prefer the caramel and toffee influence from ex-bourbon barrels will likely shy away. Regular drinkers of Aberlour’s non-chill-filtered sherry-driven options may find Macallan’s dram to be somewhat less complex and too “mainstream.”

Palate: Upfront, it’s a fruitcake medley of warm bread, soaked raisins, cloves and a hint of black pepper. On the midpalate, it’s medium- to full-bodied, with a buttery softness and more baked bread. Toward the back of the throat, you get a warm spice-and-fruit exit, with a hint of wet tobacco leaf.

Finish: Medium to medium-long finish of baked pear, cigar, black pepper and clove

Our Review

Hence, Macallan is a brand in an enviable position: It’s one of the largest single malt distilleries in Scotland with a dedicated fan base. It has solid and popular entry-level options but also boasts one the most robust (and expensive) upper-tier portfolios with 40-, 50- and 60-year expressions regularly released and auctioned for ridiculous sums. In 2018, the label, which dates back to 1824, opened a brand-spanking-new distillery and visitor experience.
