    Ok, it is ok. Actually it is a little better than ok if you havent taste any other whiskies or dont care about tasting as the "sport" we "self proclaimed connoisseurs" often do. It is bottled at 40% abv, the color is yellow (actually it is jonquiripe corn) (i totally slayed this app with that term lol), and you can see water in its borders, not too much but it is there, taking points out of this dram. On the nose is pleasant, not difficult or complex, with honey, butterscotch, butter, vanilla cream, nutty, and medicinal plants. You have to understand something, i have read that we humans percieve a range of aromas and one aroma or "note" can be 3 or 4 things for various people but really is one single note, that happens here. For me, the vanilla cream, butterscotch, butter, and honey is the same note that tricks my brain into percieving 4 diferent things, but actually that is one note. I think i read this somewhere and now i know what they (the writer) was talking about. It might sound to you that the nose should be awesome but it really is fair. nice notes but nothing too breathtaking. On the palate is more interesting, starts sweet with honey and caramel notes, to change into this FINE WOOD flavor. Actually the name of this whisky is Fine Oak, and that is exactly how it feels, as tasting some new, young, piece of wood, my brain tells me (strangely) that this feels as if my new furniture with its new colors has become whisky. Excuse me for my crazyness when describing but i believe that is the true intention of writing this reviews, to tell you what this whisky makes me feel or remember. While getting the fine wood note, you will feel the trademark spicyness from The Macallan. Macallan can be easily detected by any Macallan drinker in a blindfolded tasting, because its spicy flavor is very characteristic. The finish is long and for the first time i felt a whisky which is mouth watering. it is better on the palate than on the nose, i believe the weakest part is that it is light bodied, and actually is too easy to drink, very smooth, makes it not too appealing. Overall it is a better whisky than most 10 year old ones, and the brand name is always elegant so give it a try.
