MACALLAN - Replica 1841Speyside Malt Whisky
Nose. Incongruously, very fresh. Fudge with vanilla essence and pistachio nuts.
Palate. Silky. Fresh, appetising. sweet but not cloying. Light, fresh, delicate, notes of orange-blossom honey.
Finish. Very gentle acidity gives balancing dryness.
Comment. Delicious whisky, of true sophistication and style. Tasted blindfold, it seems a perfect whisky for todaay, not an evocation of the past.
