Macallan 21 year old Fine Oak
The Macallan 21 year old Fine Oak is a combination of three different casks. Macallan famously use only the best sherry casks and for the 21 year old Fine Oak they use both European oak that has previously held Olorosso Sherry and American Oak casks seasoned with sherry. The third type of casks used are American Oak ex Bourbon casks, something a little out of character for Macallan but adds great depth and complexity.
A rich and intense, fruity nose with vanilla and tropical fruits. The palate is mellow with soft spices and candied orange. The finish brings the slightest hint of wood smoke.
