Macallan 12 year old Single Malt Whisky 750ml (Elsewhere $55)

SKU #620009 90-95 points Wine Enthusiast

 The initial aroma is sweetish, winey and oaky; aeration allows the aroma to expand to include marzipan, treacle, molasses, honey, vanilla bean, cinnamon and cocoa butter. The palate entry is sweet, creamy and assertive; at midpalate the flavor becomes intensely nutty, buttery and bacon fat-like, with the beginnings of rancio. Remains one of Speyside's standard-bearer 12 year olds.  (4/ 2008)

K&L Notes

In his book, Kindred Spirits, international Whisky authority Paul Pacult describes The Macallan 12 as "simply the best 12 Year Old single malt around," and we wholeheartedly agree. The continued use of finest Golden Promise barley and the insistence on Sherry oak casks from Jerez, Spain are part of what goes into making this Whisky so singularly unique. In terms of bang for your buck, this is pretty darn perfect.

A beautiful amber color and smoothness on the palate testify to why this is a solid benchmark by which all other 12 year old whiskies can be judged. Toasted pine nut and a rich molasses finish are perfectly balanced against the oak finish which makes this a great sipper either neat or with a light splash of water. A must-have for any home bar.
