Macallen 12 Year
Of all 12 year scotches, this is one of the best. Unfortunately, the rest of the world realizes this too, and the price has gone up accordingly. Macallen is typically a highland scotch, but the distillery actually rests in the Speyside region of the highlands.
Spice and wood smoke characterize this whisky. It smells like spice and wood smoke, it tastes like spice and wood smoke, and it finishes like spice and wood smoke. Very well rounded, a scotch beyond its years.
