    Another fine bottling from the triple wood maturation this whisky sees. Two types of wood, American and European, previously containing sherry and American ex-bourbon barrels are used to age this series.

    A much better version from the 10 year or any other younger Fine Oak version of the Macallan. The sherry is much easier to get on the nose and finish. A better quality sherry cask, possibly Spanish olorosso (a guess without looking at label). The subtle  complexity of the nose cannot be overstated. A very good finish leaves only a little to be desired. 87/100
    • Nose
      Slight smokey note at first then moves along to a bitter chocolate and raisin, orange, marmalade, citrus and slight cocoa. Very complex ranging from the smokey to the sweet.  
    • Taste
      Medium bodied white wine texture, sweet corn moving very quickly to a sweet sherry finish.
    • Finish
      smokey almond, toffee mixed with brown sugar and nutmeg, clove moving eventualy to a dried fruit taste. Medium finish with a strong sherry sweetness coming through at the end. A very smooth finish after an initial bite on the taste.

      Komplex fruits and herbs
