Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fruity. Creamy. Vanilla. Some woody dryness.
Palate: Syrupy. Sweet. Green fruits - or chillies.
Finish: Burning sensation of having bitten into a chilli pepper.
Comment: Interesting in its own right. Hard to envisage as a Macallan, especially with its pale, greeny-gold colour.
7.8
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Rooty, leafy and spicy. Fresh ginger root, bitter orange. White chocolate. Dill. A slight butyric note. Not the usual sherry nose.
Palate: Sweet and spicy. Very oaky. Spices burn the tongue even with water added. Fresh ginger root.
Finish: Very warm, a touch of smoke (burnt wood).
Comment: An odd Macallan. Light in colour. Quite aggressive, a spicy bite. Where is the elegance and roundness? Macallan on the dark side of the moon!
