Macallan Marriage tasting by Neil Ridley

Macallan Marriage tasting by Neil Ridley

By Neil Ridley, Drinks Writer and Presenter on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch (@worldsbestspirits)

Colour: Dark amber

Nose: Intensely nutty and complex, with chopped Brazil nuts, some mossy, moist tobacco, old leather, dark Arabica coffee beans and cocoa powder. Given time in the glass, a lighter fruity note emerges with a hint of fresh orchard stone fruit arrives, alongside vanilla pods and a touch of blood orange zest. 

Palate: Oily and thick mouth feel, with an initial dry note of dark chocolate, dried figs and stewed black cherries. It’s robust, dark, rich and textured. With a touch of water, some fruitier flavours arrive, with a hint of some tropical mango, fresh black cherries and butterscotch.  

Finish: Lengthy and surprisingly fresh, with the black cherry taking the lead, alongside a lingering sweet vanilla and toasted oak.

Overall comment:  A rich, dark and mysterious Macallan, with layers of complexity, which unveil themselves as time progresses. Well balanced and highly drinkable.
