The Macallan Fine Oak 15 Bottling Note

An exceptional 15 year old from The Macallan. This was matured in a mix of sherry and bourbon, one of the best from the Macallan Fine Oak Range..

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Macallan 15 Year Old Fine Oak Reviews

Not their best

I am a HUGE Macallan fan, but, I find the 15 Year Old Fine Oak to be overpriced and way too harsh. No complexity at all. I have it on my shelf to "round out" my collection of Macallan 30,25,18,17,15,12, and 10. But I never drink it.

Macallan does it again!

Another great dram from Macallan. Not as rich as many of their expressions but I personally like this. A light, flavoursome whisky with a slightly spicy and long finish. I believe Macallan have now discontinued this so get it at a reasonable price while you still can!

High quality but light

It’s definitely a high quality malt. It’s smooth with some oaky complexity but it’s light.

20th January 2018

Just a perfect example of how and what single malt should be.

Excellent background flavor with rich but smooth foreground notes flavor , highly recommended

Are they discontinuing Mac 15 Fine Oak?!? I heard that they are discontinuing the 17 & 21 Year Old Fine Oak.

25th December 2017

Really good for a gift

Why the HELL are you discontinuing this brand! It's awesome and the best priced scotch for the money!!

16th November 2017

Just o.k.

Smooth, but not impressive, especially at its price point.

30th September 2017

A lot of oak !

Light ! but, Good.

14th September 2017

Good staple

Not sure what people are having but really good. Sweet notes fruit char wood all up front. Finishes very clean Citrius is long for the finish, very bright, not as complex as I would like but still a great drink. Very interesting taste not classic macallan to me but very interesting.

16th August 2017


Without doubt one of the greatest creations from Macallan. There are obviously older and more expensive bottles out there but what you get in this 15 year old is exceptional. Unfortunately getting harder and harder to source but if you can find this rare gem pick it up

8th July 2017


I liked it a lot. It is sweet and has nice fruit taste.

26th November 2016


Way too sweet. I'll take 12 anytime, much cleaner. BTW, sipped 25 once before, HEAVEN! But it's $1000. Think 12 is the price point.

18th March 2016

Bottle gone

Lacks complexity and after flavor taste.

6th March 2016

Goot love it

I love the taste. One of the best 15 years.

12th January 2016

Easy to drink

A nice flavor, sweet and easy to drink. Not an everyday drink but great once in a while

8th January 2016

Cannot be

Wow, not sure if everyone tasted the real 15 years, but mine was pleasant and easy to drink. I am not an expert drinker, but as long as it is smooth and taste rich it is good for me.

17th December 2015

It needs time,....

My father-in-law got me a bottle of this last Christmas and my initial impressions weren't that good. It was quite nippy, almost astringent for a 15 yo, 43% whisky. Not much going on other than old wood, some spice and some barrel char. About a 1/3 of the bottle was gone then I let it sit for months untouched. I've just revisited this whisky recently and wow, what a difference! Richer maltiness, leather, raisins, dried apricots, orange peel and old wood on the nose. Taste is similar with even more sweetness, figs, oak char, tobacco and barley sugar. Very enjoyable dram now.

20th September 2015

Expensive but taste good.

It is expensive but it is good.

9th July 2015


Macallan 15 is very good. One of the best I've had from them. Seriously, don't hate just because you don't like the price. I do not trust the ratings here that people post. Neither should you.

9th July 2015

Am I missing something?

Bought this today and it is very good! Problem with different bottlings?

27th June 2015

I like the 12 y. o. but...

This is a big disappointment. And the high price just adds to the feeling of unfulfillment. Way too much alcohol and far too little flavor.

24th June 2015

Very disappointing

Calling this "subtle" is definitely understating it. Lacks complexity on the arrival and a finish is nowhere to be found in this. With or without a bit of water, there is really nothing here worth mentioning. Until the bottle is finished, this is the one I bring out whenever I have guests that shoot their whisky rather than taste it.

11th June 2015

Sulfur and bland

This is ruined in my opinion with the sulfured casks that Macallan seems to have problems with lately. Completely devoid of complexity as the strong sulfur smell overpowers the whisky. I recommend you avoid, every year Macallan seems to go a little more downhill.

Hi there! The Macallan 15 Year Old Fine Oak has indeed been discontinued (in the UK to start, with a move to encompassing the rest of the world soon) and replaced with the no age statement, 1824 Series. You can read more about it here: --The Chaps at Master of Malt

11th May 2015


Is it really discontinued?

11th May 2015


It tastes nice.

23rd January 2015


can't really get into this one. the 10 year fine oak I though was quite good. someone tell me what I'm missing

21st January 2015


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.

shoddy reviews

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.

26th July 2014


what a complete waste of money. I've had the 10, 11, 15 and 18 year old and these coloured expressions (I'm told by the Macallen rep) are supposed to be the same just different bottles. Bull*^%#! not a single one even comes close to comparing to the year expressions. Macallen has gone down hill on my opinion. I'll spend my money elsewhere.
do yourself a favour and do the same. what a sad shame and a waste.

25th July 2014


I was hoping to find something in the Macallan range near the quality of 18 that didn't cost nearly as much. Huge mistake grabbing this bottle. I'm sitting here drinking it just to kill it and get it out of my sight.

The smell is deceptive, you can detect some wood and subtle fruits. As soon as it hits your tongue, all flavors disappear. Initially, it just tastes like light alcohol, extremely clinical and dry, then the alcohol begins to dissipate and you're left with what basically tastes like water. You get a bit of smoke and the tiniest hint of toffee in the finish, but that's about it. Extremely whatever, you'll do better with almost anything else for the price.

15 Fine Oak

Bought this to supplement my growing collection with something that was well reviewed from Macallan in the price range.

I messed up.

Don't get me wrong, it's not the worst dram I've ever had. But wow.. there really isn't much to it. All i get is alcohol on the palate... Overly dry- not a hint of sweetness. You can smell a bit of oak on the nose, but not much else.

I think there's a bunch of pumped up reviews out there to get this crap off the shelves.

For the same price, the Lagavulin 16 is 50 times the value.

16th February 2014


You spelled allergic wrong-- but I'll drink to that and your note implying to "just drink the damn Scotch, will ya?!"

1st January 2014


What the heck you fools talking about? It taste like booze. With a hint of bile and the promise of a hangover. Wait a minute! I am alergic to plum!

Just relax " tacky and shoddy looking" this is Macallan time

this is one of the better 12 year old sherried whiskies I've tasted sofar. Smooth, round, lingering long, very long in your mouth with hints of peaches and plums, malt, sweetness from buttered candies, an old fashioned Macallan. Not a great body though, however a well, very well made Speysider.

18th April 2013

15year old tasting

And YOU spelled the word "the" wrong. Tacky and shoddy looking.

Good spot, it now says wood, not owod!

15year old tasting

You spelled thevword "wood" wrong. Tacky and shoddy looking.

10th January 2011

Back to Form at Macallan!

In recent years there has been a definite lowering of standards at that Mecca of Speyside distilleries - Macallan. You can usually tell when a previously great disillery goes off the boil by the number of 'special editions' and different wood finishes it begins to employ! The staple 10 yo and 12 yo became very bland. This expression however proves Macallan can still compete & compare with the best. Classically smooth, rounded and balanced. Welcome back!
