This is a 9 year old IB offering from Macallan.
Apple, pear, sweet sherry. Vanilla dough, yeasty, honey like sweetness. Butter cream.
Thin but sweet and loaded with honey. Apples, pears, honeydew and cream. Not as complex as the nose but still enjoyable.
Medium with some faint heat and astringency. Melon, vanilla and some butter cream cake notes.
This is really interesting. I expected something unusual to Macallans typical profile and I got it. It seemed very cake and fruit forward. I wanted to like it more but the finish wasn't up to snuff with the rest.
