C- ok somehow I feel I'm going to get some push back from my fellow distillers here, I'm not a Macallan fan because I believe they are overpriced and I believe there are better options out there with good fair market value BUT this one at this ABV it's good, elegant, smooth and tasty
Lots of Sherry on the nose.
Aroma is intoxicating not meant as a pun
Carries through to the palate as well as the finish which is long and tasty
Solid 4/5 Ideally if there was such a score I would rate this a 4.12/5
My first Macallan and was underwhelmed. Lots of bourbon notes in this scotch with some sherry sweetness. Otherwise it felt a bit flat. Luckily I mooched this from a family friend, and didn’t have to buy it to try it. I tried this coming off the heels of Johnnie Walker Green, and while not a fair comparison, I enjoyed JW Green much more than Macallan No. 5 and it only costs $60.
