Macallan 15 1992 Murray McDavid

Bottled for Chateau Louis in Edmonton, AB, Canada


Region: Speyside
ABV: 46%
E150: No
Chill-filtered: No
Cask Type: Refill Sherry

Container: Glencairn Neat

Colour: Gold

Nose: Touch of pungent ethanol, cocoa, orange peel, baking spice, ginger, icing sugar, apple, light strawberry note.

Palate: Malt, oak , touch of caramel, cocoa powder, ginger, pepper, mineral.

Finish: Long, lingering malt, oak, and pepper.


Score: 77/100

Overall kind of disappointed, perhaps the refill sherry cask isn’t doing the justice, was hoping for a slightly bumped up Macallan 12 with extra proof and un-chill-filtered. The nose is a bit pungent for 46%, not too bad got some basic sherry notes. The palate is rather simple, more malty and oaky than sherry.
