Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship The Macallan 12 Year Old Sherry Oak to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

Macallan 12yo Sherry Oak Bottling Note

Released as part of Macallan’s ever-wonderful Sherry Oak range comes this 12 Year Old. It has spent its entire maturation in sherry-seasoned oak casks from Jerez, and is bottled at 40% ABV after its 12 years of ageing. It’s full of all those hallmark dried fruit and marmalade notes we’ve come to know and love from a sherried Macallan.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Crisp and sweet. There are notes of sultanas and fresh apple blossom. There is a defined floral note followed by Sherry hints. Calvados emerges with a tropical fruit note and golden syrup.

Palate: Medium-body and quite firm. There are notes of hot pastries and marmalade, sultanas and peels with a developing sweetness from the barley sugar.

Finish: Good length with a solid oaked note

Macallan 12 Year Old Sherry Oak Reviews

Let it sit on the shelf..

I must admit when I first popped the cork on this one I was not blown away. The nose is wonderful , however the palate always left me underwhelmed..

Roll on 12 months and this has been sat on the shelf approx. 2/3rds full and the taste has somewhat changed since I last sampled it.
Plenty of vanilla, sherried dried fruits on hand but unfortunately no smoke (I have been on Ardbeg so may have dumbed down my palate).

Still an overall delicate whisky as opposed to others on the market and would only buy again at a discounted price. For over £70 I would prefer to buy an Ancoc 18 or Glendronach 15. I think I paid about £50 but still think there are much more interesting and complex drams out There..

Macallan 12YO

One of the best 12yo I've had. Smooth and delicious. Highly recommended.

Too Light compare with the old stock(Brown Box)

Disappointed with the taste

Disappointing

I found the flavours much less subtle than I expect from a Macallan, especially a 12. Alcohol and calvados dominate from start to end and ruin any of the sherry/fruits finish. If it was half the price I’d still be disappointed.

Alcohol forward not sherry

I’m a regular 12 year old double cask fan - it’s my go to drink. I thought I’d tray myself and this was such a let down. It’s 50% more price and tastes harsher - the first sip is too alcohol forward. Seems to me all they did was added 3% to the alcohol and added 50% to the price
Stick with the double cask

Perfect 12 year old

This is my go-to 12 year old whisky. It is consistently excellent with a wonderful sherried flavour, sweet but not too much so and a long woody aftertaste that lingers. Yes it's around £70, so comparatively expensive to other 12's, but worth it in my opinion. It never lasts long on my shelf.
