Macallan Gold

Macallan Gold

Official bottling
Single malt - Speyside
40% ABV

Nose: Vanilla, yoghurt, orange peel, raisins, honey, hints of tobacco leaf. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, thickens slightly, astringent, loose. 
Tasting:  Sweet. Freshly baked bread, yoghurt, orange peel, raisins, honey, hint of milk chocolate. 
Finish: Short. Raisins, honey, yoghurt, hints of orange peel. 


Another NAS whisky. I can't remember which Macallan expression this one replaced - the 10 year old? The 12 year old? Well, no matter. It's slightly disappointing, it tastes... young. There's a shallowness of flavour, lack of complexity, lack of deep chocolate and fruit notes, instead quite of lot of light yoghurty and bready flavours. OK, no more.


Not bad.
