“Not my kind of whisky but I know many of you that would kill for this one. The most floral Macallan I have ever had”
It was then aged for 12 years in refill hogshead number 5745 before bottling by Douglas Laing in the Winter of 2010.
This whisky is the most floral Macallan that I have had. Not a single trace of that incredible sherry character Macallan whiskies usually have.
This dram has a white wine-like color.
Nose (85): more than average. honey, some floral, spices, vanilla, citrus. Very floral Macallan. One of the most floral I have ever had.
Palate (84): smooth, powerful. floral, wood, spices, vanilla, honey, smoke. Really floral. At times it remind me of Glenglassaugh
Finish (83): longer than average. floral, citrus, vanilla.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Macallan 12 Year Old 1997 Cask 5745 - Provenance (Douglas La with 84 points over 100.
