Tasting Notes

"A sweet and malty dram from Macallan. From the taste of it the vatting has a large proportion of American ex-bourbon casks in it. Aromas of honey, crème brûlée and traces of burlap. The palate shows a fair bit of wood, as well as bitter oranges and charred oak. It also has a sweeter side with raisins and vanilla. The finish is fairly fruity."
