This is an annual re-release of a product line established by Macallan in 2017. Classic Cut is a NAS sherry expression from The Macallan that is bottled at cask strength. There is some concern that this release won't hold up against last years release (which I was quite fond of) but the only way to tell is to try it. Let's dive in.
Sweet nutty toffee, honey and sticky stewed fruits. Raspberry, dates, amaretto and currant. Nutty, sweet, sherry powerful.
Thin to medium mouth feel. No real heat. Honey, toffee, rich stewed fruits. Sweet blackberry, currant, raspberry and fig. Light musty tobacco.
Short, a bit hot. Not as much going on here. Toffee, faint stewed fruits, light astrigent plastic note.
Oh how the mighty have fallen. I rebought several original Mac CC's but I think that I would easily skip over rebuying this. The most noticeable difference is in the finish.
