Dram Review: The Macallan Reflexion

[43.0%・NAS・Bottled in 2014・Official Bottling・Limited Release]

Nose:

An elegant and effortless delivery of Sherry raisins and fine chocolate on the nose, combined with a silky vanilla note. There is perhaps no surprise at all.

Palate & Finish:

The sweet note is persistent with just a hint of buttery barley.  Sweet chocolate and ripe red fruits seamlessly intertwined on the palate, with a subtle appearance from the cinnamon spices.

A classy finish of well seasoned wood and youthful cinnamon dust.

Thoughts:

It is constructed with a formula to please but sometimes there is something lacking even in a flawless whisky.

Perhaps I am unjustifiably expecting too much..
