A Sherry wood matured 12 year old from Macallan, a superbly balanced affair, one of the best of its age group.
Nose: Crisp and sweet. There are notes of sultanas and fresh apple blossom. There is a defined floral note with a beautiful Sherry, calvados emerges with a tropical fruit note and golden syrup.
Palate: Medium-body and quite firm. There are notes of hot pastries and marmalade, sultanas and peels with a developing sweetness from the barley sugar.
Finish: Good length with a solid oaked note.
