Macallan 17

Country: Scotland

Region: Speyside

Type: Single Malt

Bottler: Hart Brothers

ABV: 46%

Score: 90 Points

Hart Brothers bottled this single malt out of a first-fill ex-Sherry butt, and the nose reminds me of apricots, figs, fresh bread, and molasses cookie dough in the oven. The taste is sweet and chewy with a touch of pepper. Molasses cookies from the nose, along with figs and hints of cinnamon and vanilla make this a really good after-dinner dram! (2008)
