VENDOR: The Macallan
Composition for whisky
Firstly, it is Pooh, sherry of sheer excellency, without a touch of false note, every conceivable dark berry in every imaginable form, fresh, ripe, thickened in jam, as juice, crushed, dried, with the full raisin splendor, sweetness, oak, sweet orange, orange , sweetest, ripest figs fresh from the tree, hints of smoke which I perceive mainly as a spicy wood or leather, maybe a little milk chocolate, caramelized nuts and a lot of honey. Hariobo gold bears. Cream Liqueur. Ultimately, macallan 25 nose is simply on 2 components: SWEET! and SHERRY! Of course, that makes the whole thing two-dimensional, but these 2 dimensions are great for that. Every sweetmouth and sherry whisky lover must have their mouth watering. He will hardly be able to control himself, finally to drink.
Furthermore, it is almost a bit lax for the intensity of the aromas in the nose, here I had expected more body, round and soft, sticky sweet with plenty of sherry, nuts, raisins, orange pulp, become stronger wood influence, leather, here less caramel, in the second sip again spicy and more wood,
For a long time, the sherry and the sweet reverberate, here the wood has disappeared again. The finish suffers a little from the missing body in the taste so that only a little long “hang” remains. In further gulps a little more wood remains in the finish
I do not find the overall picture quite harmonious. Nose and mouth / finish apparently do not play the same song or at least not the same pitch. It is certainly a very good whisky with justifiable 90 or over 90 points. But for me no 93 and for me also by no means worth 2 T €. Which, which Malt is that already. Still a great malt for a nice moment in life.
Macallan 25 Year Old Sherry Oak Scotch Whisky Review
Here we have some reviews from our clients
A further tasting and my score has dipped to 88, the reason for this is that at 43% it lacks power, it is still a high quality malt but at around 48% this would have been much better.
I am downgrading the macallan 25 to 85 points, i did say it was smooth but the more i have the less i like it.
