Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: Sweet with honey, vanilla and butterscotch. A hint of citrus fruits and barley before the oak.
Taste: The sweet theme continues with vanilla and then light spices mixed with the oak.
Finish: Dry... very dry but delicious. The sweetness is still there with caramel mixing with light spices and oak again. Maybe just a hint of coffee at the very end.
Balance: Smooth, sweet and superb. The sweetness carries all the way through without ever becoming too much. There's a constant reminder of the name with the oak and some light spices always just bubbling away under the surface.
Macallan have given up their age statements so it will be interesting to see what one thinks in a few years with the Macallan Gold the replacement for the 10 y.o. Fine Oak. This is certainly an enjoyable whisky.
