It seems that this rather expensive NAS was mainly matured in American oak, including bourbon barrels. I would dare to say that I really like the name of this expression, which reminds me a bit of François Truffaut, don't ask me why. There had already been a 'Night on Earth' in late 2021 but I never tasted it. Colour: gold. Nose: it reminds me a bit of the early Fine Oaks, with a rather simple but nicely floral and fruity nose. I find a lot of jasmine and orange blossom, maybe even rose petals, then simply apple and pear juice, vanilla, honeysuckle, acacia honey, and then a plum tart sprinkled with cinnamon. As it should be! Nice nose. Mouth: a light and quite elegant Macallan, rather close to a Balvenie we will say, with vanilla, tarte tatin, quince cake, ripe mirabelles, and barley sugar. I find it very consensual and certainly far from the 'historic' Macallans. Perhaps there is a bit of sherry in it, but it is very discreet. Some sultanas, perhaps. Finish: rather short but fresh and playful, fruity, mainly on apple pie. A light honey is back on the retro-olfaction. Comments: nothing to say, it's good! No comments
