Macallan Fine Oak 12 Years Old
The Macallan Fine Oak 12 Years Old forms part of the Fine Oak range and is matured for a minimum of twelve years in three exceptional oak cask types. The uniquely complex combination of sherry seasoned European oak casks, sherry seasoned American oak and ex-bourbon American oak casks delivers a smooth whisky with notes of dried fruit, honey and subtle spice.
Nose: Nectarines, sugared almonds and vanilla toffee. Spicy oak and golden malt lend a good balance to the sweet opening notes.
Palate: Good sherried malt in here, rich and sweet with plump raisins. Developing orange peel notes. Warm oak at the core.
Finish: Quite long with vanilla and sultana.
What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Macallan Fine Oak 12 Years Old
Quote 1 “I really like this whisky. Elegance is probably the key word: it’s not battering you over the head with sherry or bourbon or toffee notes or whatever. It’s effortlessly complex and full of tension. Great for drinking at any point in the evening. ”
Quote 2 “Just started on the fine oak range and have to say this 12 yo is stunning. Great on the nose and on the palate. No water needed just revel in the flavors of a good Speyside. Getting a bit pricey as it winds down but I’ll be sure to have some of these locked away for future enjoyment. “
Quote 3 “Very smooth. Good finish. It’s much better after you allow it to open up. ”
