Macallan has been getting all sorts of glowing reviews recently for their brand new campus and distillery tour. We just saw it in June-2018 (brand new!), and weren't impressed.
Don't get me wrong, the campus and the distillery itself are INCREDIBLE. Gorgeous, modern, lovely thing to see.
But the tour itself felt a lot like Disney World. All show and no substance. It was hard to hear, the tour guide didn't seem very knowledgable as compared to other tours we'd been on, and some of the things on the tour were utterly over-the-top ridiculous. Using sound waves to hold a drop of water in the air for no reason at all? Ummm... OK then.
The whisky is good, and the campus is gorgeous. But if you're on the fence about visiting this distillery, I'd recommend almost anywhere else.
