While having friends over for tasting and exchanging some whisky I got the chance to write some notes on this the Macallan 12 year old bottling from them.
The nose was light and sweet with a light tobacco and leather note in the back. Some stone fruits, honey, vanilla, raisin and toffee coming through. Also some ginger bread and light warm spice notes.
On the palate it was sweet, and not too heavy on the notes in it, but honey sweet and filled with dried stone fruits. Vanilla, raisin and toffee coming back strongly again. Banana foam candy, fruit cake, cream and chocolate.
A nicely balanced and fruity dram with many very present toffee notes. Not too dry on the tobacco and leather and a full nose and palate. Medium length finish with sweet notes like honey and soft chocolate. Giving it a 7,5 out of 10. Nice one. Thanks Werner for sharing!
