Insider knowledge: Macallan 1940 - Speymalt (Gordon & MacPhail) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Macallan 1940 - Speymalt (Gordon & MacPhail) whiskey, as opposed to 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.
