The whisky is quite fruity (green grape, orange, tangerine, and dark cherry), with balancing notes of vanilla, roasted nuts, and a hint of peat. Dry, lightly spicy finish that lingers. It is complex and nicely balanced for a whisky of this age. Still, I feel the 15 year old Fine Oak edition is better and, at $65, one-tenth the cost. (Spring 2006) Reviewed by: John Hansell
Does Maccallan Scotch have a bottle that cost over $100,000.00 If so, what is the name and where do you get it.
Wine Maker Notes
The Macallan Fine Oak is triple cask matured in a unique, complex combination of exceptional oak casks;1. European oak casks seasoned with sherry impart a rich character with hints of dried fruits, spice and chocolate orange.2. American oak casks seasoned with sherry deliver delicate hints of citrus lemon, coconut and toffee sweetness.3. American oak casks seasoned with bourbon deliver floral aromas and sweet notes of vanilla and fresh fruits.This triple cask combination delivers an extraordinarily smooth, delicate yet complex Single Malt matured at The Macallan distillery for a minimum of 30 years.
The Macallan is a brand of single malt Scotch whisky first distilled in 1824 at The Macallan Distillery near Easter Elchies House, at Craigellachie, in Moray. The Macallan is currently distilled and bottled by The Macallan Distillers Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Edrington Group which purchased the brand from Highland Distillers in 1999. The distillery produces a number of expressions in its core Sherry Oak series, the most generally available being the 12-year-old, although the 18-year-old is widely distributed, alongside a 10-year-old cask strength expression at 58% ABV. Expensive 25- and 30-year-old versions can also be found.
