Just an FYI ... no for sale threads are allowed any more so that may be the reason.
Anyway I got both bottles safe and sound and thanks for all your help. Very good of you to keep in touch and make sure that I got them.
here are my thoughts on it not that I'm an expert or anything.
Macallan 20yo 55.4% (Private Bottling)
Nose: Initial blash of clean malt then lightly singed wood & plasticine. Then comes the fruit ... banana and lovely sweet peach syurp, With a touch of felt tipped marker. Becomes more floral & perfumed with water.
Taste: Quite fruity, rich & slightly viscous soft fruit like ripe peach & apricot. A bit of tongue prickle to off set the fruitiness.
Finish: The sweetness continues a while then turns to Sweet & sour before becoming quite dry for a lovely contrast.
Definitely not a Macallan most are used to as this a bourbon barrel, the sherry influence is missing which to me is no harm. You can see where the fine oak series is coming from here but this is a wilder version of Macallan beauty.
