Firstly, A beautifully coloure and intensely flavoure sherry cask matured whisky from Macallan. Aged for 10 years in sherry wood, it’s bottled at 100 UK proof (57%) for more oomph. A much missed classic.

This is the one that had ‘This Whisky is 100 proof’ on a large red sticker, I suppose some good folks had been buying it without noticing, and had been surprised when pouring their first dram. At that time, such high strengths were often seen as too extreme if not totally crazy. Things may have changed… Anyway, here’s to you, Michael!

Colour: dark amber.

Nose: essentially Macallan, with all the raisins, dried figs and dates of the creation, plus touches of thin mints, cough syrup, fir wood, and espresso coffee. I think it’s the sappy/honeyed combination in the background that gives it away. There are also flints and a little wood smoke. A big dram, actually subtler than I remembered, but that maybe be OBE. With water: oh great, fern, autumn leaves, beef stock, Grisons meat, even marrow soup. Macallan 10 Year Old 100 Proof Bot.1990s

Mouth (neat): very potent, almost viscous, and extremely rich. Did someone invent fruitcake after this, or was it the other way around? Many many raisins, also coffee liqueur, and an ‘intense’ (MJ’s very word) fruitcake-iness. Under that thick raisiny layer, notes of cough medicine, pine liqueur, and a little charcoal. Plus marmalade, of course. With water: it’s pretty perfect and seemingly more herbal/pine-y that the low-strength young Macs from that period of time.

Finish: very long, and rather more oloroso-ish, that is to say drier. Walnuts and all that. Comments: had it at 89 around the year 2000, but OBE may have brought one more point to the table. Dear MJ had it at 89 points, by the way. Cheers Michael!
