The Macallan 15 Year Old Fine Oak

Speyside

 

The Macallan Fine Oak is triple cask matured in a unique and complex combination of exceptional oak casks. European oak sherry casks impart a rich character of dried fruits, spice and chocolate orange. American oak bourbon casks add floral aromas and sweet notes of vanilla and fresh fruits. American oak sherry casks deliver delicate hints of citrus lemon, coconut and toffee sweetness. This combination delivers an extraordinarily smooth, delicate, yet complex single malt.  A suprising departure for a well known brand.
