So much whisky, so little time | Singapore | Tasting Notes

Macallan 30 1963 / 1993 Cadenhead 54.7% vs Macallan 13 yo 1973 / 1987 SMWS 24.6 61.7%

More proof that vintage whisky (and a big name) is not automatically good whisky.

Macallan 30 1963 / 1993 Cadenhead 54.7%

Old books, dried up glue, even a little cardboard. Dust, ozone, then syrupy oil, expensive potpourri and ginger tea. So, odd one. Dry medical powder, concrete, dried bittergourd, stale lemon rinds. Quite powerful on the tongue despite it’s okay-ish abv. Interesting at the very least. 85 pts

Macallan 13 yo 1973 / 1987 SMWS 24.6 61.7%

Sweet cream, butterscotch, white wood, leather, tobacco leaf, rich oils, melted butter and white sugar. Some dusty notes, citric acid and old flower petals. Straightforward, powerful and lots of clean and sweet white oak influence. Could do with another 10 years in the cask. 84 pts
