Macallan Fine Oak ‘Whisky Maker’s Selection’
Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: Macallan
It seems that most whisky afficionados are no big fans of the Macallan Fine Oak series, but this one does get pretty good reviews. The spirit is matured in a combination of “only the best” bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks. There’s no age statement and bottles are only available in duty free shops.

Nose: vanilla and peach. Some pineapple and a light hint of coconut. Oak as well. Spicy taste (liquorice), vanilla again, praliné and dry sherry. Less fruity and not overly sweet. Aftertaste on chocolate, apple cake and a little coffee. Nice balance. Good stuff.
