Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Reminiscent of a hot toddy,ginger, vanilla,brown sugar with a twist oflemon citrus. Some spice as well.
Palate: That vanilla note comes through more with a delicate spiced orange.
Finish: Long with the oak coming through.
Comment: A stunner... but why just Duty Free? Share the love.

Nose: Soft and sweet. Pear crumble.
Palate: Initially sweet and fruity,then a trace of almond and apple pip,and finally atidal wave of pepper and peat.
Finish: Peaty,spicy and quite long.
Comment: A surprise for a Macallan - but a pleasant one.
