The Macallan Fine Oak (12)
Distillery: The Macallan
Expression: 12 year Fine Oak
Category: Single Malt Scotch
Really stellar offering for an entry level single malt. Flavors and complexity galore thanks to the triple cask maturation. Fantastic nose, smooth and mellow on the palate, with a short but smooth finish. Sadly, it’s been discontinued.
