Whisky 2018 – 83

83 – Macallan 14 Easter Elchies 1991 Cask 7020 Sherry Puncheon
Nose – musk, sugar, brown sugar, wood, soy sauce, egg whites, apricots in caramel, grilled pineapple
Palate – brown sugar, whipped custard, aero bar, salt caramel, woody, pink marshmallows, super chewy, spearmint, cake mix
Finish – dried apricots, bitter cocoa, huge tannins

Macallan has some serious following not without reason. I get it but it’s always so soft and too much of an almost romantic whisky, for me – if that makes sense. This on the other-hand this had some serious tannins to it and I found it significantly more complex and interesting than any other Macallan I’ve tasted.
