Nose: Orange peel and ripe melon, mango, vanilla pod, coconut and hazelnut
Body: Full, smooth
Palate: Honey, nutty oak, cooked orchard fruits, caramel toffee, oak, dark chocolate; superb balance
Finish: Very complex fruits, spicy
First Tasted: November 2006
Very smooth finish! It’s a well rounded scotch and a tasty one too.
I got the Macallan 15 after trying the Macallan 21. I enjoyed the Macallan 21 very much. Unfortunately I found the Macallan 15 undrinkable. The reason for trying the Macallan, is because I am looking for a scotch which does not have peat or smoke (I like peat and smoke) to add to my collection.
I am new to scotch so judge this review accordingly. My wife who has a very good palette like the finish.
