MacNaMara Rum Cask Finish Blended Scotch Whisky

A good, cheap blend with a satisfying nose and refreshing to drink.  Love them when they do it like this.  Thanks to Q for the sample!

MacNaMara Rum Cask Finish, 40% A

blend_mac10Nose – Fresh, sour, a little wax.  Great barley, quite a lot of cereal but nicely integrated with wood and a fresh malt sweetness.  Quite elegant, classical, well rounded but on the light side.

Body – Sweet and light, fresh chocolate, cereal body, very refreshing.  A honeyed, cereal backing, some pepper, all very nicely integrated and put together.  Quite addictive and very enjoyable.

Finish – Wet, short, refreshing, but no finish to speak of. 

What's not good about it: Very light.  Delivery is very wet and weak.

What’s good about it:  Great, balanced nose with plenty of whisky cereal.  A very drinkable session whisky with a nice, subtle sweetness.  And a bargain.
