Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Malt. Vanilla.
Palate: Nice syrupy, malty middle. Creamy. Sweetshop flavours. Sufficiently soothing to calm the palate before the abrupt termination.
Finish: Spicy. Hot. Late smokiness, and astringency.
Comment: With a colour close to that of today's product and a bright clarity, this visually recalled some of the yet-older Macallans that have inspired replica editions.
9.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fruity, intense. Pear drops, lemon curd. Orangey notes, halfway between flowers and fruit. Quince jam.
Palate: Smooth. Citrus fruits. Orange sherbet, candied orange peel. Nougat. Wood easily dominates.
Finish: Quite dry, but fresh with a delicate mintiness.
Comment: A rich, smooth expression of The Macallan. Relatively light in colour. Seems stronger than it really is.
