Insider knowledge: The Macallan Select Oak 1l whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be The Macallan Select Oak 1l whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Toasted oak, pepper and marshmallows, fruits, Black Forest Gateaux.
Palate: Nutty, almonds, calves leather, vanilla, sherried peels and ginger.
Finish: Mulled wine spices and malt.
Quite agree with above reviews...avoid at all cost!

Has a extremely off putting sulfuric nose, so bad you cannot nose it, taste is just ok but nothing memorable at all here, tastes like a very average whisky and hard to believe it is a Macallan. After several attempts to "like" it with a die hard Macallan fan we both gave up and couldn't get past 100ml.

Sulfuric notes spread out until one quarter of bottle , maybe because of sherry cask, but after this a great flavour and nose grew: chocolate, sherry and vamilla.its really creamy and smooth. Definitely a stunning choice.

Very nice on the nose, almonds, wallnuts, vamilla, litlle citrus. Medium bodie . Great on the palate, sweet, Apple pie, marzipan, long finishing, definitely worth a purchase!
