From “The Wood makes the Whisky” campaign from Gordon & Macphail comes an expression from the Macallan distillery distilled in 2006 and bottled at 43% on 17/11/2015.
The palate has some fruit sweetness and bit creamy. Hints of malt and good amount of fudge.
Don’t think I tasted it before in a whisky but getting baklava on it. Also some mango, banana all mashed up, vanilla and light leather with oranges. Bit weird, but not unpleasant, but also a bit sulphur on the medium length finish mixed within the vanilla and white chocolate.
Nose grows on you with the sulphur must say but on the finish it gives me a bit dry and sourly feeling. Like the feeling of biting into a slice of lime while you had it in your bacardi cola and it comes against your teeth when taking a sip. This whisky leaves me a bit puzzled to be honest. It is ok, but does not feel completely balanced and a bit young? But maybe it is just that I am not a huge fan of sulphur notes. Scoring it an 7 out of 10. Thanks Gordon & Macphail for providing the sample to taste this one.
