The Macallan, distilled in the heart of Speyside, is arguably one of the great single malts around. The 10yo is the entry level expression of their Sherry Oak range.

The nose is fruity and brilliantly sherried. I detected orange jam, apricots, toffee and a whiff of smoke.

The palate is medium-bodied and extremely well-rounded. It is silky on the tongue as every Macallan expression from the Sherry Oak range, very smooth and sweet. There are again hints of orange and toffee.

The finish is not overly long, sweet and with lots of oranges.

I like this expression quite a lot. It is much sweeter than the 12yo and very distinct in its emphasis on oranges and toffee. This is one of the few Macallans where in my opinion the price performance ratio is very good.
