Whisky Online Auctions Tasting Notes:

Colour: Amber.

Nose: Beautifully earthy and fragrant. Full of moss, ferns, all kinds of dried herbs, pumpernickel bread, wet leaves and mushroom powder. A cooling coal hearth, a touch of strawberry liqueur, some hessian and dunnage warehouse and a dusting of cocoa powder. Beautifully integrated sherry and distillate. 
Palate: Big, a little sharp at first, and full of spices like nutmeg, cinnamon powder, cloves and various other mulling spices. Some cured meats, freshly baked brown bread, black olives, sage, rosemary and gorse flowers. A touch of desiccated cocoanut and muesli comes through as well. Some more meaty notes in the form of bovril and beef stock. 
Finish: Long, earthy, meaty and full of dark fruits and warming spices. Quite a layered finish ending up on a long chocolatey fade. 
Comments: Another blinding good mid-aged Macallan. Again, this could easily sail to 30 years of age without too much trouble it would appear. One that will certainly reward a little patience in the bond. 

Although a condition report is normally included in the lot description, we would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids.

If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please use the link "ask a question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen and described.

Please note: due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
