[70°・NAS・Gordon & MacPhail Bottling]
Mmm.. aged soy sauce, rather umami indeed. The creaminess is transcending with the underlying raisin note tiptoeing in, the warming bone broth note gradually surfaces.
Palate & Finish:
Soft cotton like mouthfeel, the presence of the raisins fares more like an armagnac, strawberry jam and seville oranges intertwine to release a fragrant oil that almost masks the earthiness, it grows more indulgent with toffee cubes, dried orange slices alongside an intriguing kiwi note.
Nothing I say really matters in this instance I suppose, this is a Macallan distilled in 1936 and a simple, yet satisfying sherried whisky. I imagine this is what defines classic.
My best guess is this would have been aged for about 30 years.
