The Macallan Whisky Maker
Price: $90 ● Issue: Summer 2009 ● Reviewer: John Hansell
Full gold. Oily in texture, with ripe barley, front-loaded toffee, honey-drenched citrus, fallen orchard fruit, and a full complement of spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove). Gripping, resinous, slightly hot finish. The flavors don't meld together here as well as the other three expressions, but it's still a fun ride. (Price is per 1 liter).
