Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    This is an old, now discontinued release from The Macallan. It is matured fully in sherry, and bottled at cask strength without coloring or filtering.

  • Nose:

    Super pungent, meaty sherry. Prunes, figs, rich toffee. Massive stewed fruits, tobacco and nougat. Powerful, earthy, more fruit and cocoa driven sherry rather than butterscotch and light berry driven.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. No real heat, despite the proof. Figs, dates, pepper and tobacco are prominent with a rich cocoa and currant structure.

  • Finish:

    Long, rich and loaded with notes like pipe tobacco, cocoa, rich blackberry and currant jam. Figs and dates abound.

  • Overall:

    Really a phenomenal product, and one that myself, along with many others, miss dearly.

  • Score:

    8
