Tasting Notes
Oliver KlimekColour: Very dark amber - Nose: Prunes, dark chocolate, leather and a hint of pipe tobacco. - Palate: Dried fruit, chocolate, black currant, caramel, a little cinnamon. - Finish: Very long and fruity. - Overall: Much creamier and noticeably more mature than the 10 yo Sherrry Wood. The nose is terrific, and it's also intensive on the palate despite the 40% bottling strength. The best value of the Macallan standard range.
