Insider knowledge: The Macallan Director's Edition The 1700 Series whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be The Macallan Director's Edition The 1700 Series whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Spiced and ginger, vanilla cream and barrel char, lavender, parma violets, lemon zest.
Palate: Sweet and zesty, notes of spice, malt and tangy citrus, a little fudge, cocoa and nutmeg.
Finish: Long and spiced, tar and linseed oil.
I just killed mine a wonderful very smooth, (TIP) use a few drops of water it really opens the flavor and aroma up.
one of the most wonderful scotches I have had the pleasure of obtaining.

Superb! Great notes. Fantastic finish. To say it is very drinkable is cheating it with an understatement. Hope to find this on the shelves in the US in abundance! Thank you. Cheers. JKR

As above add a drop or two of water to really experience the flavour and aromas, not too sweet and not too subtle balanced just perfectly, would recommend

How old is this scotch?

As it's a No Age Statement whisky, The Macallan don't provide any information about how old it is, I'm afraid. --The Chaps at Master of Malt
