  1. The Macallan Edition No. 6

    Exquisite. Better for the money than the 18, Rare Cask and 25. Those are all great but this is spectacular for the price. All Sherry up front with maple syrup and dark chocolate almonds topped with warmed caramel sauce on top. The palate is a hefty swish and the finish is beyond long. Amazing stuff. 100/100

    Probably my favorite whisky to date. And that’s saying a lot considering I’ve had many well over $1000. This is like the 10 year but a GIANT step up. It’s finish is all sherry without any distant bitterness from the oak like the 10. The nose is literally a chocolate brownie with fudge and sherry poured on top. Im not kidding. A legit masterpiece. Quite hefty on the palate as well. The best distillery in my opinion. They operate so small which is why they care so much 100/100

    I actually think this is excellent. It’s a much better No 7. Just exceptionally smooth. Sure it’s a bit watery but everything is there. The usual jack honey vanilla notes but very perfume oriented and brightly in your face. Really good stuff. Shockingly good like a Dickel 12

    Reviews for Jura are mixed. This is the first one I ever tried and really enjoyed it. The nose is very sherry and nut forward. White oak is there but not extremely dominant. Nuts, raisins, massive amount of Sherry and fruitiness. A calm fig along with vanilla and caramel are also present. The dram is hefty on the palate and very mature for a 10 year. The finish elevates the dram with a strong spicier finish. Really excellent stuff. The reviews are mixed but if you’re a sherry fan and like sweeter stuff, get this. For all it’s worth and the age it is, 97/100. This is like Edradour, a quiet master.

    I easily prefer this over the 25 and 18 for the money. I ordered this at a restaurant and it came in your normal boring rocks glass but I could still smell every flavor in that terrible glass. Giant sherry bomb. Chocolates, sweet intermingled fruits, nuttiness, honey, syrup (maple maybe). Zero alcohol on the nose. For an NAS this is packing some older stuff for sure. The palate is a swish of brilliance with some viscosity. The finish is sweet yet spicy and is quite long. Incredible stuff. 100/100

    The first whisky I ever had as a kid was the 18 year fine oak triple cask which I remember being blown away by. It got me into whiskies and since then I’ve had thousands of drams but haven’t had the Mac 18 sherry yet. The nose on this 12 is brilliant. Strong nuttiness, dried fruits and sherry sweetness. Smooth finish with a medium length. Is the 18 worth it compared to this 12? Idk but for the massive price difference the 12 has to be your normal go to for Macallan. I know Glendronach is cheaper for higher aged malts (18 and parliament 21) compared to Macallan but Macallan is still tremendously excellent. You pay for the entirety of how they operate and it doesn’t disappoint regardless of what you pay. 95/100

    An 84 “expert rating” really? This is an A level whisky. The honey marmalade baked apples and sherry appear on the nose. Some fruits are there but it’s so tasty in sweet dessert aromas that you almost want to take a bite! A bit of dry woodiness appears on the finish with some oiliness. Overall fantastic especially for the money. 96/100.

    Unreal. Legit the heaviest dram I’ve ever felt on the palate. This thing swishes in your mouth with such a smoothness that is hard to describe. Sherry is dominate with cooked fruits and some fresh oakiness. Sugary cherries are there as well. Finish is very robust and as smooth as can be. Insane, just insane. The 18 is beyond great but this is wildly magical. 100/100

    Paid $100 for the shot. Insane sherry character. I’ve never smelt sherry more clearly before. The dram is very strong on the palate, it coats your mouth and entire face in a spicy sweet overload. The finish goes on for decades and is exceptionally smooth. I’d say this is up there with any dram I’ve ever had. Sure it costs a ridiculous amount of money and you can get a Glendronach or something like that for cheaper, but it’s Macallan and they are masters that can command a price for various reasons. You got the money? Don’t think twice. 100/100
