The distillery The Macallan is a guarantee for especially smooht and complex whiskies, even if they say so themselves. I can only concur. I recently tasted three in their Fine Oak series and each and everyone was wonderful.
The Fine Oak series was launched in 2004 and matured on three casks : first Spanish sherry casks, then American sherry-flavored casks and finally American ex-bourbon casks.
The nose satisfies the expectations, being (somewhat) complex with honey, heather and white fruits.
On the palate these tones are nicely balanced with the malt and oak wood. This whisky is very smooth indeed!
I had hoped the finish to be a bit longer, but it's still very pleasant.
This is a very accessible whisky for a good price (approx 32 EUR). A soft, everyday Speysider.
