Lot #571. The Macallan Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky Cask Strength NV

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 92 WE.
"Chestnut/oloroso Sherry-like hue. Smells of baked bananas, rancio, hard cheese, burnt matches, oloroso sherry, fruit cake, dark chocolate and charred hickory. On palate it's firm, not as hot as I thought it might be and lip-smackingly luscious; at midpalate the intensity of the alcohol slightly burns the tongue; once spring water is added the taste profile readjusts itself and emits ambrosial flavors of Christmas pudding, honey, molasses and dark caramel. Aftertaste is long, chewy and chunky. Luscious." Wine Enthusiast, 6/1/2006
Provenance: The Cambuse Cellar
Notes: OC. (59% ABV). Lightly torn, very lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $800
