“Very interesting single malt. More subtle than the old 10 years old Sherry Oak but nicer at the same time. This whisky shows more of the Macallan Spirit than the old sherry monster”
This batch of Macallan Gold has been produced from 9-15yo first fill and refill sherry casks and is designed to sit between the now-defunct 10yo Sherry Oak and 10yo Fine Oak bottlings.
This dram has a amber-like color.
Nose (89): more than average. honey, nuts, citrus, vanilla. Very nice aroma. Really does the work. It is slightly more subtle than 10 years old Sherry Oak.
Palate (90): powerful, oily. nuts, honey, wood, citrus, spices, tobacco. Very nice whisky. Definitively it is a nice Macallan to initiate yourself in the range.
Finish (89): longer than average. nuts, honey, citrus.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Macallan Gold with 89 points over 100.
