The Macallan Fine Oak 15
An exceptional 15 year old from the Macallan. This was matured in a mix of sherry and bourbon, one of the best from the fine oak range.
The nose is quite subtle and of medium-body. There are notes of rich, lush stone fruits and Bramley apple, a hint of peel and some Calvados notes. There are some dry wood notes with a definite mustiness. The palate is quite full and round with plenty of bourbon notes. The winter spices and vanilla crème abound with a chewy oak underlying. A little dark chocolate appears. The finish is of medium-length with dry oak.
It tastes nice.

Wanted to branch out from glenlevitt (i like the Nadura). So i bought this. No comparison. The naddura tastes way better to me. Despite having a bite and costing half again as much, Macallan tastes watered down to me.

I feel people may find their purchasing skewed by the shoddy reviews of the 15yr macallan it is a very tasty dram and we'll worth the price tag I have a couple of bottles and it is a nice drinking whisky rather than a special occasions OMG whisky but worth every penny even so.
