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: Opening is surprisingly vibrant and energetic for such an oldster. Second pass offers even greater depth and definition of bouquet as succulent scents of red fruit, old oak in the form of vanilla extract and mild oloroso sherry beguile the olfactory sense.

 

Palate: Smooth as silk, a touch of honeyed, and strangely but pleasantly citrusy.  

 

Finish: Medium long and shows a touch of molasses at the tail end.

 

Comment: A superb example of an older malt that's still fresh, yet carries the stamp maturity in style and grace.
