Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated Rated 90-95 Superb/Highly Recommended
The initial aroma is sweetish, winey and oaky; aeration allows the aroma to expand to include marzipan, treacle, molasses, honey, vanilla bean, cinnamon and cocoa butter. The palate entry is sweet, creamy and assertive; at midpalate the flavor becomes intensely nutty, buttery and bacon fat-like, with the beginnings of rancio. Remains one of Speyside's standard-bearer 12 year olds.

For something so highly rated I expected much more. Not complex and overpowering, I much prefer Glenlivet or Dewars in the same age class.
Having been a Macallan drinker for many years I was very pleased to find your site and probably the best price on the internet. Keep up the good work and I will continue drinking and you will continue selling to me!
I used to drink Macallan regularly some time ago. I remember it as a very nice Scotch. I found other Scotch I prefer, but, I would drink it again. It's good and not too expensive. It mostly deserves its high rating. I might rate the 12 year old just a little lower, but I like a different type of Scotch mostly.
