Nose: Dried fruits - in particular raisins, figs and apricots. Also rubber and a mild touch of struck match. Vanilla and cinnamon. Rich and warm.
Taste: Full bodied and on the sweet side. Rich honey and caramel mixed with the same dried fruits. Almond paste, oranges, vanilla and cinnamon. Cool and a bit aloof in character.
Finish: Medium long finish. Continues as it started. Not a lot of development. In the end I am left with the caramel, the almonds and perhaps a hint of citrus and mint.
Comment: A decent dram. Nice to be treated to a Macallan with a bit more omph than normal, but it could have been omph-ier.
