Words of Whisky (79)

Nose: A touch of pickled oranges, vanilla and shortbread, as well as a whiff of mirabelles. Some cereal notes too, like dried husks and cornflakes, but also a sliver of copper.
Taste: Fairly creamy with plenty of vanilla, some burnt toast, black pepper and a whiff of ginger, as well as cinnamon and dates.
Finish: A touch of oranges and white pepper with finally some quince jelly.

It's a fine whisky for what it is, but The Macallan A Night On Earth In Scotland won't soon blow you away. It's well-made but nothing about it truly stands out. However, I like it better than some of their other age stated whiskies, but The Macallan A Night On Earth In Scotland is still on the expensive side.
