Distillery

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: Michael Jackson

Finish: Cocoa butter. Long.

 

Comment: A cracker, typical of old (and older style) Speyside.
