Macallan 25 YO Fine Oak

Single Malt Whisky
43% 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: More concentrated. Citrus peels, overripe fruit, polished oak. Intense and exotic: rose petals, Turkish Delight, parma violet, nutmeg and cinnamon.


Palate: Tobacco notes, chocolate and coconut. Coffee, heather. A good back-palate whisky.


Finish: White pepper, crystalline ginger. Elegant.


Comment: Maturity, refined rather than over the top. Great to see distillery character retained at this age.
