The Macallan 15 year Fine Oak Scotch Review

To me, The Macallan is one of the great scotch distilleries in the world, and in order to get to know the Macallan you really need to delve into their traditional sherry aged offerings.  I actually enjoy the Fine Oak series that is far easier to find around these parts, but they need a bit of time as the ten is very one-dimensional.  The 15 year is, to me, a great expression of the creamy style that Macallan built their reputation on, despite being aged in three separate barrel varieties.  The nose is new oak, sherry, dried fruit, brown sugar.  In the mouth I get that creamy flavor that everyone talks about, and the finish is really long and enjoyable.  This whisky manages to be ultra-smooth yet lasting and warming.  I love it.  If you're in SLC, you can also snag a dram of The Macallan 15 Fine Oak at The Wild Grape for a steal!  Score: 85
