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: Paul Pacult

Nose: Initially, chocolate covered orange, dry malt, and oak.  

 

Palate: Entry is utterly graceful, layered by sweet grain and oak barrel complexity that takes the form of vanilla wafer, toffee, and fudge.

 

Finish: Ends in a cascade of semisweet oaky flavor that borders on being honeyed.

 

Comment: A perfect, understated Speyside single malt.
