it hits your palate, the entry is assertive with a sweet, creamy taste that is
deliciously smooth. The flavor then evolves midpalate and becomes intensely

to be shared during an evening with friends, you can enjoy Macallan 12 Year
Scotch straight, with water or over ice. As a way to bring out the dried fruit
and cinnamon notes in this scotch, pair it with a plate of goat cheese and
fruit flavors during a tasting experience. This is also the scotch of choice to
mix in cocktails such as a Maple Old Fashioned or Blood and Sand.
Remains one of Speyside's standard-bearer 12 year olds. - P.P. (4/1/2008) - Superb/Highly Recommended
