Brian
Brian,
Great scotch, price was hard to justify for a 12 year
 
SCOTT
SCOTT,
A very good scotch but there are better for the price. A bit sweeter than I prefer. No smoke at all. Very smooth. Macallan 18 is still my all-time favorite. Can not afford it now. Lol.
 
Randall
Randall,
Sherry cask influence lightens it up. More sweet than I prefer. I definitely like the peated, smoky whiskys.
 
Diane

Excellent balance of sweet and spicy
 
Dustin
Dustin,
Great scotch. Fruity, smoky, woody and very smooth. Best consumed straight up. Mixing it would be a crime.

Not sure if this selection is the sherry cask or double cask the one I am reviewing is the sherry oak.... nose is straight forward sweet sherry the mouth is sweet sherry also with dark honey and very little spice this is my favorite single malt so far. Most likely due to it being the smoothest and I love the sweet sherry price is a little high but macallens standards seem very high so the price I’m sure reflects the time and work they put into perfecting what they sell overall my favorite so far

Macallan 18 is my favorite Scotch, but rarely can afford it, so I stock its little brother.
 
Derrell
Derrell,
my rating is based the cost to reward ratio. the price isn't worth it. i've many other 12 year scotches that blow this out of the water.

Solid smooth sipping Never disappoints. Lot's of woody flavor
 
Adam
Adam,
Excellent single malt, especially for beginners. Very butterscotchy on the nose and palate, some vanilla and cinnamon breaks through on the tongue as well. Spicy and long, burning finish - very pleasant.

Good balance of zest and floral flavors, easy to drink, reminds me of Glenlivet 12 year.

Rob
Rob,
This has been my go to for many years, but hoping to change that with my introduction to Flaviar. I enjoy the sweet oaky flavors and prefer it with a cube.
 
Kayla
Kayla,
Exceptional! Mild woody burnt sugar nose, super smooth warmth and wonderful hints of the peat and smoke on taste with a kiss of sherry aging on the finish. Really nice. Neat all day.

Complex and great for the price point. Love the sherried scotches.
 
David
David,
Good neat. Notes of sherry and oak with slight hints of caramel
 
Patrick
Patrick,
A good frequent-use single malt. Smooth, sweetish, and easy to enjoy. If you nose it more than you sip, it really opens up nicely.
 
John

Smooth, rich flavor and mild aroma make for a great sip.

Nice. Smooth. Warm
 
Damon
Damon,
A great go-to dram for any occasion. Sweet nose with a sweet and spicy palate, the finish tapers off nicely leaving you wanting more... definitely recommend.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, rich, Single Malt Whisky with a rich birth; while a rich & full life leads to a long & complex death with vanilla, dark honey & floral notes.
 
Justin
Justin,
Moderate levels of wood and spice to make it a decent and easy drinking whiskey
