Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Very fruity, with notes of orange and pear on the nose. Also has a good dollop of sweet spices which develop into an almost smoky character. The sherry on the nose is refined and well balanced, with hints of honey and caramel.

Palate: Textbook malt delivery which gives way to a mouthful of dried apricots, prunes and figs. Hints of nutmeg and cinnamon weave in and out of an epic whack of honey that only a Speyside distillery of this kind of nobility can produce.

Finish: A long, full finish that carries fig, spices, chewy oak and a touch of light smoke.

    User Reviews of the Macallan 25 Year Old Sherry Oak

    The best

    Put it this way, you can't drink money. You can't eat it, and it at the end of the day it's just paper. If there is any question in your mind weather or not this is worth the money, I'm here to tell you it is. This is my second bottle and the flavor that I get with this of mellowed sherry, and sublime perfectly aged oak is better than any other liquor I've ever tasted. Sure there's the $2,000+ cognacs and all that, but this is better than all of that stuff. Forget the Louis tre and all that other stuff. Buy a bottle of this, have a dram every 3-4 months, share it with friends when they really love scotch, and every 16 months invest in it again. For some of the best stuff on earth, $850 - $1200 is well worth the price.

    So it is said Death rides in. What is not noted is that he is drinking The MacAllen. This is why he is never in a hurry.

    Maccallen 25 sherry truly 5 stars

    I have been collecting and drinking very old and good cognac in the pass 4 years, and also wine for the pass 12 years. Recently, I started to consume single malt whisky because of some good friends recommendations. I have tried as many Whisky as when I can or even comparing 6 difference bottles at one time. But, nothing I drank earns my heart of perfection. Until a night, a friend of mine pour a glass of whisky for me for blind taste. When I smell it, my heart started to open. When I drank it, I tell myself that this is what I am hunting for. It is maccallen 25 sherry oak! For money wise, if you Can spend, get as many as you can find before it is getting much more expensive.

    A night at the Bellagio with my friend Mac25

    I've seen this referenced in movies, however, never would I think to be drinking a glass...let alone two glasses in one sitting. Nevertheless, I was fortunate enough to have a friend working the high-limit slots at the Bellagio who comped me at the bar. His words, "anything you want bro". So I asked the bartender if he had a choice to drink anything at the bar, what would it be? Without hesitation, he said "Macallan 25". I asked how much a pour was, he said "$125". "Damn", I said, "let's run this!" The nose was very fruity with notes of orange and pear. I couldn't wait to have this hit my palate!!! There was a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg running wild baby!!! As for the finish, lovely spices with a touch of smoke. OH YEAH!!! Feeling a little guilty, I said, can I get a glass of 18 year Macallan. He instantly replied, "you're friend is comping you, why go backwards?" And he poured me my second glass of heaven...

    Macallan 25 sherry cask

    I have had two bottles in my lifetime and treat every dram with honour. Only can be described as "the very special tipple". We are all very lucky to have this 25 year old available and even better if we have a bottle. I eventually bought a bottle for my son this Christmas and we had a real cream on the cake when it come to after dinner tipples. The best whiskey, in my opinion. Enjoy.

    Perfection

    Biblical references to honey and ambrosia were likely precursors to this nectar of the gods. I have purchased a total of 5 bottles over the past 20 years or so, and 25 / The Anniversary Malt (as it was also known) has never been equaled on my palate. I've experienced scores of premium scotches over the years and enjoyed several "tasting" events put together by friends, but I would not consider myself an expert. An avid enthusiast, perhaps. When I celebrate a major accomplishment or welcome a new friend, I typically offer a dram of 12, 18 and 25 in progression. While the depth and character of 18 really stands out after 12, what is most interesting is how the 25 compares to the 18: the mouth is even more supple and complex, even as the sherry backs off. As aptly noted above, there is a hint of "oiliness" which gives the deep flavor the proper staying power, and the finish is a lovely grace note of fig, spice and a whiff of smoke. Again, I'm no expert. But to me, Mac25 is the perfect scotch because in one dram you get a superbly balanced taste of all the best the genre has to offer. It's like an all-star team with players from the various regions of the country, all in perfect harmony. It's too bad the price has gone from $130 to $800+ during the past 20 years, doubling from $400 as of December, 2012. But a change in distributors and demand pull from China will have that effect on super-premium brands (great French wines and Swiss watches have risen sharply, too). Even still, I have yet to find a substitute for this sublime offering. I honestly doubt it exists. Take the plunge. Savor it. And share it if you can.

    Mac25

    Just finishing off my second dram of the night of this beauty. tons of caramel and butterscotch on the nose, figs, raisin and peat to the palate. Opened up my bottle of 25 after a taste of a friends bottle of Mac30 on the course. Amazingly, I prefer the 25! Both worth every penny, but I'd take 2 bottles of 25 for 1 Boyle of 30 any day of the week. a truly memorable scotch, and 100% Macallan...

    Superlative in nose, feel and finish

    Had my first (and probably last, as it is insanely expensive!) glass of this incredible Single Malt Scotch. Was at a local restaurant and decided to finish a delicious meal with a whiskey, instead of dessert. I'm a Balvenie Single Barrel Reserve or Glenlivet 18 year Single Malt girl. However, the restaurant had an impressive selection of Single Malts, Bourbons and Rye's so I decided to go for the Macallan 25. 'Spirits' menu had no prices listed and having no previous experience with this particular scotch, I naively assumed it would be a $40-50 dram. I didn't ask and the waitress didn't quote any price! When the glass arrived, I was immediately taken with the gorgeous, deep, rich color and holding it to my nose, detected apricots, honey, buttery vanilla notes followed with rich, spicy dried fruits and a hint of peat. The mouth was supple and full, with just the right 'oily' texture to give it some depth. The best was the finish...warm, cinnamon and spice - followed shortly with a subtle smokiness that lingered just long enough. An incredible Speyside Single Malt. Hated to finish it off as it was truly the finest Scotch I've ever had the pleasure to drink. When the bill arrived I was shocked to see the price...$105 for a dram!!! Our waitress was heralded in the restaurant for selling a Macallan 25 that day. Still, despite the price it was a very special experience and I'm delighted that I did not know the price before I ordered it! I would have never had that superlative experience. Sometimes you have to just close your eyes and 'jump!'

    Absolutely amazing

    I was fortunate enough to try a wee dram of this today and it was truly fantastic. I'm not sure about the pear on the nose or the apricots on the palate, but other than that I think the review from the "Chaps" is fairly accurate. I actually thought the whisky was slightly creamy too, and after finishing the dram I got a good whiff of charred oak and wood smoke from the empty glass. It's ridiculously expensive, but if you can spare the cash then go for it!
