Macallan Sienna was tasted at Meeting No. 34 on March 26, 2015. Out of 5, we rated it 2.88. Macallan Sienna ranks 32nd overall in Scotch. Costing $100, this spirit is on the pricier side given the our rating of it.
Silky smooth Mac 12 that's has the edge taken off. Odd burnt finish.
Deep chocolate and pitted fruit. Bittersweet cacao and jungle aroma.
Light-bodied, a tinge of cream, mild burn in back of throat, a bit sour...not remarkable to me right now
Smooth front to back of the tongue. Nothing to write home about. Peppery, warm, consistent.
Mahogany, raisins, mint, and peanuts - taste and nose the same. Calm drinker next to a fire with the basset hound curled up on my lap. Similar character to Glemorangie.
Strawberry on the nose with vanilla extract. Sits and stays in the back of the throat. Slightly feminine. Gets creamier as you sip. Dried fruit.
