Whisky Reviews for Macallan Select Oak
34 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.24 points
- Very similar to Amber, a quite simple Macallan, easy to drink
Sherry, orange, lemon, cardamom and cinnamon, some coffee, wood notes, after a while, dark chocolate appears
Again sherry and orange, gingerbread, oak, at first looks a bit thin in the mouth, but then increases by the remaining sherry taste
Only the sherry stays longer, otherwise rather short to medium
- Pretty nice reasonably priced bottle from Mac. Entrylevel stuff, but an enjoyable sip. These kind of bottles are awesome. You can just buy them without any risk. Spend the money and you can be sure to get your moneys worth.
Sherry. Vanilla. Dried fruits.
Nice and easy. Nothing spectacular, but nice. Some spices. Dried fruits. Benefits from the sherry cask portion.
Medium ending. Leaves a nice fruity oiliness in the mouth. Some vanilla jumping in your tongue as well..
- Sweet, honey and caramel on the nose
Sweet, sugary, chocolate and vanilla on the taste
Short, delicious finish
Easily drinkable, no sharp corners on this one.
- "The 1824 Collection is a range of Macallans released for the travel
retail market. The Select Oak edition is a complex combination of
first-fill European oak casks seasoned with oloroso sherry, and American
oak casks seasoned with either oloroso sherry or bourbon."
- Mild and drinkable dram.
It tingles the nose a little. Dark fruits. Plums, blackberries, figs. Bit of a cigar box - cedar wood and sweet tobacco.
After the first sip, sweeter like vanilla and marzipan.
Mild and sweet. Creamy mouthfeel. Lots of dark fruits and chocolate. Here, too, mild, sweet cigar tobacco. Will be very sweet.
Mild and soft. Medium length. Slightly spicy with a few walnuts.
Begins with a clear nutty maltiness, gradually followed by vanilla, brown sugar and chocolate with caramel pieces. Becomes a bit more sryry-toned over time. Later also some oak.
Spicy-malty start with nutty sherry tones. Then dark chocolate, dried figs, melted brown sugar and "giant" chewing clay.
Medium long and very chocolaty. Later also roasted hazelnuts.
