We can't actually ship The Macallan 10 Year Old Sherry Oak to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

The Macallan 10 Bottling Note

A 10 year old from the Macallan matured in sherry casks. Macallan uses only Golden Promise barley, and actually use up 90% of the annual crop of Golden Promise in Scotland!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Macallan 10 Year Old Sherry Oak Reviews

Paying for the name

Nice dram but too pricey for me. For £75 plus I at least expect 46% Non chill filtered.

The price of Sherry casks....

Back in 1989, as a Student in St Andrews the then 10 year old Macallan was the first single malt that I was introduced to... at the time, whisky was in a slump, all Macallan was matured in old first fill sherry casks (one likes to believe), and even the 10 was made with older casks.... roll on 30 years and the industry has changed... old sherry casks for first fill? £1000+ for the empty cask, popularity has driven prices.... a 10 year old Macallan bottled in 1990 which would have cost me £18.99, can be found for around.... £400 rare, but also high quality... This 10 year old is not the same. But its is still a decent and refined dram. £75? well you are adding a £25 premium for the brand, but its the same with anything you buy. I bought it for the nostalgia of a youth... a reminder of those days drinking Malt with friends all night before responsibilities - and it does that just fine and therefore its worth the extra. You will enjoy.

Това при мен е на цената на 21yo Ballantine's. Какво купих ли?
Купих ги и двете ,
по три бутилки!
Ех, не завиждайте на стария човек...
Не се пускайте от завист!
Просто се пръснете...завинаги!?

very good but expensive

I like the 12 years a lot. Tried the 10 and it was equally good but the price isn't justified. Why so? is it limited in stock?

21st June 2016

Smooth but...

...overpriced. Enuff said.

Macallan 10 VS Glenfiddich rich oak

Both were good but I gotta say this one is more smoth.

Sublime whisky that always makes me feel warm inside. The description given here is a little OTT, but not far off . It does have a wonderful creamy thickness that glides down the throat. The 10yr old Sherry Oak is more sophisticated than the 10yr Fine Oak and it's always been more expensive. The depth of the whisky varies according to my mood.

You can't justify the price for this 10 year old no way

Such a lovely whisky(as described below/previously)just like liquid fruit cake, mellow smooth not fiery. I have tried it against the 12 year old and it is much better more complex, I just wish the distillery would start making it again the price has shot up since production stopped. Please Please Macallan distillery (if you are listening)just start making it again, none of your new whisky's comes near it. Mr Macpherson Huntly Aberdeenshire

One of the best 10's around

After a pleasant walk along the river spey we stopped at Macallan and tried a dram or two. I bought this to take home and loved it. Its an easy drinking speyside, great finish with lots of honey and straw and I preferred it over the glen livet 18 ( not perhaps the 21, which I love but at twice the price it figures). The only bad thing is the price which has gone up considerably since I bought it, I might have to drive back to Scotland it would be worth it.

At this price you have to be kidding me

$113 for Macallan 10 are we going loopy here? Go but a Macallan 12 for $50 and call it a day. You get 2 more years of maturation, and all the great sherry flavor for half the price. Don't buy the hype here. Just go after the flavor. This is WAY overpriced.

A favourite.

This sums up Speyside single malts for me and it's possibly the best bottle I've owned as well as tried. Super easy to drink but has buckets of flavour and finish. Pricey for a 10 yo, as seems the Macallan way but I'd say this is an elite scotch.

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.

Liquid Fruit Cake

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.

Essential drinking for fans of a smooth Sherry Cask

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.

Whisky Finesse

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.

The malt that made me a whisky lover.

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.
