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.
