The nose is soft on this with some dried fruit and honey melon. The palate is much of the same, soft and a bit grassy with some oranges. The finish has a bit of spice/pepper and is a medium finish. This is another solid expression put together by Duncan Taylor. If you are looking for peat, look elsewhere as this bottle from Islay has no real peatiness to it.

Lots of vanilla and honey on the nose of this one. The palate is soft and fruity with some vanilla pound cake and cinnamon/light spice. The finish is medium bodied with some white chocolote. This expression is soft/ reminds me of a good summer expression, but not overly complex.

Not a typical Macallan here, cask strength and no sherry. The nose is fresh fruit/ citrus. The palate has some serious malt and cereal, I love the ballance of malt and light sweetness here. The finish is medium and not as hot as I would have expected, nice spice and figs taste in the end. This is nicely done.

The nose is heavy perfume, floral, and oak. The palate is really nice with sweet fruit, peach cobbler. The finish is long and dry, a little sour and tart. The finish is a bit to be desired. However, the palate is so good by the third sip I was swilling it around in my mouth before I swallowed it. Decent expression
