Comment: The flagship of The Macallan range in the UK market, The Macallan 10 Years Old has become a benchmark for single malt of the highest quality. The 10 Years Old is matured exclusively in oak sherry casks from Spain to deliver a deep, rich, deliciously smooth and well-rounded flavour with a slight sweetness and touch of sherry and wood.
This satisfyingly complex Single Malt is characterised by its rich colour, aroma and flavour with hints of dried fruits, spice and chocolate orange.

This has been my go to whisky for a long time now. Goes down easy, with a perfect flavour that comes from the sherry oak casks. This is my other half's standard Christmas present to me, and is just as appreciated now as the first bottle was

The best 10 year old on the market for sherried malt fans. What a pity it has been discontinued. I hope Macallan can keep all its fans satisfied without compromising on quality in its new 'no age' bottlings.

By far the best 10 year old I have tried

Firstly, 'Sherry Oak' is definitely far better that 'Fine Oak', which is easy-drinking and neutral. / Nose: honey and tea, pear, dried fruits, sauna. It tastes mild, yet very rich and rewarding. Highly recommended.

This is a good "everyday whisky" if you want a cheap whisky with a decent quality. Recommendable.

I kind of like it but the sherry is a little too much for me - it feels unbalanced. I probably should have got the fine oak

I have already drank the fine oak. Both excellent. Try the 15yr old.

One of the best malts there is - nuff said. And that's the view of many of the experts. Having read the reviews here, am a bit confused about whether to try the Fine Oak version.
- Cocktail Shaker Boys, 20th Dec '09
must say im little disappointed with this one. Bought this after recommendation and wish i had spent my money elsewhere. i am not saying it is bad - far from it! I just know i will never buy it again. Rather harsh taste, okish nose... veni vidi forgotten :P
- Dasir, 14th Dec '09
To balance the above. In my opinion nowhere near as complex and satisfying as the Fine Oak of the same age. A fine whisky but please try the Fine Oak as well !
- anonymous, 9th Dec '09
Can drink this all night if i was allowed. One of the top young malts in my opinion. Go buy some now lol.

Epically good. I've only smelt one Speyside better and that's the Glenlivet 18YO. This is probably the best value malt for this age I've tasted. Definitely superior to the Fine Oak, I'd agree.

Excellent Single Malt Whisky! Cheaper than Macallan 12 but comparable in taste and nose. Superior to Fine Oak series.
