Murray McDavid 16 year old 1990 vintage (distilled at Macallan), 46%

Price: $125 Issue: Spring 2008 Reviewer: John Hansell

Finished (or ACE'd -- additional cask enhanced -- as they say) in a Madeira cask. Soft in texture, and deceivingly seductive in nature. Pleasingly sweet (honey, caramel, aromas of sticky toffee pudding) with lush summer fruit and gentle spice notes emerging towards the finish. A soft, pleasing Macallan with everything in balance. Nicely done.
