Macallan 12 years old Sherry Oak
40% (International version)
12 years old
100% ex-Sherry, European Oak
Color : gold going on copper.
Nose : franc, sherry, definitely wooded. Dried apricots.
Palate : very slightly viscous, full of spices (cumin and paprika). Slight astringency towards the end, probably due to the cask. Increased presence of plums, also towards the end.
Final: very short and hot. Still all in spices.
Comments : explosion of spices ! It’s good, it’s Sherried. It’s not a bomb, but it’s quite pronounced. I would be curious to taste that at 46-48% ! This one is drunk accompanied by an old strong Cheddar … epic as a pairing ! I really enjoyed this expression. It’s a shame it is not widely available in Canada…

I never liked vodka&orange or vodka&cranberry while going out in the Montreal Clubs. I was always drinking whisky&ginger ale or whisky&coke. At some point, I just let go of the liquors and started drinking whisky neat... I hated the taste but damn was I a badass in front of my friends ! Eventually, I stopped being a douche and started enjoying finer drams. Today, I’m making it my mission to taste every whisky and to know everything there is to know about spirits, wine and beer !
