From Edinburgh, Scotland, McCallums is a bartenders standard for mixing any drink that involves Scotch. Its full flavour allows for versatility. A large percentage of the McCallums blend relies on Cragganmore (see entry), a highly regarded Speyside Single Malt, providing McCallums with its round mouthfeel and slightly peaty character.
The whisky has a particularly strong following in Australasia.
Other reviews... Pretty competent and clean of no great age. Lovely malty sweetness combining with soft smoke for a full bodied start and then finishing with firm grain. Bottled in Australia. 40% alc./vol.
