Macallan 15 Year Old Sherry Oak Description
A deliciously smooth Macallan single malt – this rich and well rounded whisky is easy to drink and will not disappoint. Described as refined, rich, and rounded with plenty of sherry cask influence and perfectly balanced with woodsmoke and spice. Has been dubbed ‘simply the best 15 Year Old single malt around’.
Crisp sweet and floral on the nose, with beautiful Sherry notes – calvados emerges with a tropical fruit note and golden syrup. The taste brings medium-body with plenty of fruits and marmalade, leading to a long finish with a whisper of oak. Fantastic!
The Macallan’s oak casks are the single greatest contributor to the outstanding quality, natural colours and distinctive aromas and flavours of The Macallan. In fact 60% of the flavour of a whisky is derived from the cask it is matured in. Because of this, The Macallan spends more per cask than any other distillery in sourcing, crafting, seasoning and caring for its casks. Spanish sherry seasoned oak casks deliver flavours and aromas of chocolate orange, dried fruits and spices; American sherry seasoned oak casks primarily provide sweet citrus, light spice, vanilla and light oak flavours and aromas; American bourbon seasoned oak barrels give flavours and aromas of sweet citrus, coconut and oak.
Dried fruit and butterscotch with baked apples, balanced with notes of chocolate and smooth oak.
Sweet raisin and sultana builds with cinnamon and nutmeg, alongside creamy vanilla.
Medium with lingering oak and spice.
