The Macallan 21 year old Fine Oak, 43%
Price: $220 ● Issue: Spring 2005 ● Reviewer: John Hansell
Even drier and expressing more of the complex floral and spice notes found in the 15 year old. However, by the time the whisky reaches mid-palate, the dried fruits, dried spices, and general wood notes become prominent, preventing the whisky from revealing other sides of its usually multi-faceted personality. It's still a very fine whisky, but not as good as the 15, regardless of price.
