The Macallan 15 Year Fine Oak, 43% ABV
Single malt Scotch whisky (Speyside)
Nose: Toffee, brown sugar, roasted malt, and a hint of green apple.
Palate: Sherry undertones coated with some honey and vanilla. Light fruits. The sherry still stands out for me, though it is definitely muted in comparison to the Macallan Sherry Oak whiskies.
Finish: Sherry and toasted wood.
Rating (of 100): 88. A bit too sweet and sherry-dominated for my likes; I'd like to see better integration between the sherry and bourbon casks. The nose is the winner on this one. Even though I just (about 30 minutes ago) sampled the Glenlivet 12, which is also sweet, I feel like this one is cloyingly so.
