Macallan 12 YO Fine Oak

Single Malt Whisky
40% Alcohol content


Macallan is Speyside’s best known heavyweight. To collectors, no name has the magic of Macallan. Originally, Macallan was only matured in oak sherry casks brought to the distillery from Jerez, Spain. Beginning in 2004, Macallan introduced the Fine Oak series (lighter), with the whisky mellowed in bourbon oak casks as well as sherry ones.


House Style: Big, oaky, resiny sherried, flowery-fruity. Spicy.

Tasting Notes

Taster: Dave Broom

Nose: Rounded, some complexity. Fresh malt, hemp rope, burnt grass. Sweetens into toffee, sultana, soft fruits. Hint of smoke, oak and white pepper.


Palate: Mouthfilling. Banana split, milk chocolate and juicy fruits but sufficient crisp oak and malt to balance.


Finish: Medium length. Creamed coconut, popcorn.


Comment: The best balanced of the youngsters. Everything is beginning to fill out. A 'Drink Me' malt!
