Whisky or Whiskey
Insider knowledge: The Macallan 10 Year Old Sherry Oak whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be The Macallan 10 Year Old Sherry Oak whiskey, as opposed to whisky.

The nose is quite light and clean. There are notes of rubbed petals and apple blossom and hot pastries. Marmalade emerges with notes of sherried peels and barley sugars, vanilla fudge provides sweetness. The palate is of medium-body and well-rounded. There are notes of walnut and salty melted butter. Hints of fudge and crème anglaise. The finish is of medium-length and quite oaky.
Essential drinking for fans of a smooth Sherry Cask
Liquid Fruit Cake
I never understood how anyone could like the taste of whisky? Im 43 and recently went on a jaunt to the Highlands. I was blowing the froth off a few lagers in a beautiful hotel in Dunkeld and was staring at all the whiskies lined up as trophies in the bar. Intrigued, I got chatting with the barman who was extremely knowledgeable. He gave me this macallan. I was Instantly impressed. I can't believe how ignorant I've been.

Great stuff. Incredibly strong flavours of dried fruits, particularly raisins. Reminds me of strong and alcoholic fruit cakes. An absolute delight, very distinctive!

The Macallan deserves its reputation as one of the greats - you're unlikely to come across a better entry-level whisky than this. The palate is slightly weak compared to the excellent and complex nose, but this is a minor quibble. One of the most enjoyable whiskies I've had.

Outstanding. Many years ago I was unaware of the Sherry and Fine Oak seperate versions. I started with the Sherry version and one day bought a Fine Oak bottle unaware of the difference - Until I drank it and was most unhappy with the Fine Oak version. This is a winner and is so smooth, knocks spots of other competitors.

A friend and myself decided to investigate this muched hyped Macallan,the investigation led to quite a debate as to wether we had ever tasted a smoother well balanced whisky,it was hard as there are some fantastic whiskies out there,close as it was, we did agree it was up there with the best in this price range.Very very enjoyable.

55 years I hated whisky. Then one night I was at the Thainstone Hotel, Inverurie, enjoying a Guiness. There were rows and rows of Macallan. May be it was the open fire, but some reason I said, "I'll try a Macallan please,"
One sip was a life-changing moment. It was absolutely beautiful. Some months later I took my wife to Aberdeen and showed her The Grill. At that time it had 384 whiskys. The barman informed me that Macallan 10 year old was easily their best seller and I could not help but smile and nod.
