The Macallan Masters of Photography 1991 (Release 3, Cask #7023), 50.8%

Price: $2,750 Issue: Fall 2012 Reviewer: Dave Broom

This time we've got Macallan in savory mode, even a little balsamic. The spirit shows its hand more than in the 1995, with typical Macallan heft. Now you are deep in a forest of yew and larch with a dark chocolate bar for sustenance. Maturity has brought out leather alongside clove and resin. The palate shows a similar tomato note seen in the 1995 cask, with positive bitterness and wedding cake. Though grippy, it has great balance. 285 bottles.
