Colour: Rich Gold.
Nose: Vanilla with hints of ginger, dried fruits, sherry sweetness and wood smoke.
Palate: Deliciously smooth, with rich dried fruits and sherry, balanced with wood smoke and spice.
Finish: Sweet toffee, dried fruits, lingering wood smoke and spice.
And for their Elegancia:
The Macallan Elegancia is selected from a unique combination of sherry casks, which have previously contained both fino and Oloroso sherries.
Colour: Bright Gold.
Nose: Light citrus with vanilla, sweet toffee, spice and oak.
Palate: Spice and citrus, balanced with a nutty maltiness.
Finish: Sweet toffee, with spice and light oak.
I hope this helps.
