Possible that your palate has evolved since your last visit with Macallan 12?
As a regular Macallan drinker, it has now been some years since I last opened a Mac 12yo and sensed those extras. The Macallan 12yo is still a fine dram, but it doesn't stand out above the rest like it used to.
But seriously the cask strength is probably the best value now and more likely to be purest of what is offered. Everything else is getting to be dicey unless it was barreled back in the 80's!
