Macallan Amber

The Macallan Amber (40%, OB, 2015)

  • Speyside single malt scotch whisky
  • 40% ABV, £45
  • Score: 78/100


What they say:

Colour: Amber

Nose: Polite, almost apologetic at first, with a floral, citrus sweet nose that gains presence, commanding a chorus of vanilla notes over freshly harvested grain.  Raisin, sultana and cinnamon look on as toffee apples and candy floss step into the limelight.

Palate: Fresh green apples and lemons mingle with cinnamon.  Ginger notes hover as fruit takes over, with subtle oak lingering in the wings.

Finish: Light to medium with soft fruits and cereal, slightly dry.

What I say:

Sample during Water of Life Society (WoLS) meeting 13/02/2014 – Spirit of the movies

Avid fans of Skyfall were left believing the expensively product placed Macallan is Mr Bond’s favourite tipple – you will find out later that this is simply not true, though he does tuck away a far splash during the movie, even the gin-soak M get’s in on the act!

getting warmer, a little sherry influence and more complex
