Reveals supple, buttery, and piney aromas; more
time allows a pleasant fruitiness to appear along with traces of vanilla and cedar. Palate entry is honey
sweet and silky; The backbone flavors are clearly the
sweet grain and vanilla bean. Concludes warmly in
the throat. An extremely pleasant malt. Best Buy.
|Wine maker notes
|The Macallan Fine Oak is triple cask matured in a unique, complex combination of exceptional oak casks;
1. European oak casks seasoned with sherry impart a rich character with hints of dried fruits, spice and chocolate orange.
2. American oak casks seasoned with sherry deliver delicate hints of citrus lemon, coconut and toffee sweetness.
3. American oak casks seasoned with bourbon deliver floral aromas and sweet notes of vanilla and fresh fruits.
This triple cask combination delivers an extraordinarily smooth, delicate yet complex Single Malt matured at The Macallan distillery for a minimum of 10 years.
