What's in a name? Macallan 1940 - Speymalt (Gordon & MacPhail) whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Macallan 1940 - Speymalt (Gordon & MacPhail) whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Lots of sherry and Macallan character. Cocoa, coffee, hints of smoke, bittersweet, hay, earth.
Palate: Sultana, thick and chewy, hints of smoke, spices, nutmeg, musty, deep.
Finish: Good finish, all on sherry, mellows and fills the palate.
