The Macallan 12 Year Old
The definitive article tells you how highly regarded this whisky is – indeed, it's the classic example of a sherried Speyside.
There's plenty of sweetness on the nose, in a heather honey style, alongside powerful sherry notes. More sweetness to taste, and combined with the sherry it's pleasantly reminiscent of trifle, as the fruitiness comes through towards the finish.
A great after-dinner malt or digestif.
