Last year’s 20 year old Scotch bottled for Costco was from The Macallan (see post). This year, it’s a mystery. Anyone know why?
Bottled at 40% abv, nosing this scotch is easy and pleasurable. There is no alcohol burn at all. Instead, I smell gingerbread cupcakes and freshly-baked fruit tarts. On the palate, it is very malty, and slightly sweet. A bit one-note. However, its redeeming feature is that it is smooth, really smooth. There is no bite at all. The finish is very short. Overall, a decent whisky for the price.
