Customer Rating
Matured in Bourbon & Sherry Oak Casks. This range has been around for a few years now and seems to have weathered the storm it caused amongst the faithful when it was initially released. "The Fine Oak range is...more approachable, and has the potential to be embraced by a greater percentage of whisky drinkers....cutting back on the sherry reveals more of the Macallan spirit, which is first-class." John Hansell, Malt Advocate Magazine

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Colour: Pale Straw.

    Nose: Complex, with hints of fruit and heather honey.

    Palate: Soft, with a maltiness, balanced with oak and fruit.

    Finish: Lingering with hints of oak and fruit.

    Comment: Our unfaltering obsession with selecting the finest casks and distilling sublime spirit brings an unsurpassed, timeless quality to The Macallan. The unique combination of Bourbon and Sherry oak casks produces a particularly smooth, delicate and light whisky.

    You have to have a sharp palate to appreciate this one. Complex, but light. The flavors are on the sweeter side, but there is subtle smoke. Very blend-like, but in a good way. Got a hit of bourbon on the first sip ... trippy. Poured two fingers and one stone.

    Nice not the best Nose Mild on smell a tiny hint of spice Palate hard to find the right taste too smooth for me tiny hint of apple or pear, no smoke Finish not quite long enough but very pleasant Botton line this is a nice whisky and would drink it if there was nothing else on offer. For ?60 a bottle rather buy Macallan Gold for almost half that. I can tell this whisky is on the right track problery be a lot nicer if left in the barrel for another 10 years. This was very light and pale with not enough flavour and too expensive after researching Macallan they should of know better.

    Macallan - the Rolls Royce of whiskies. Just not this one. Oak Oaky McOak seeks vanilla partner for good times and fun - gsoh essential, looks not important. Wagwan??Macallan = Sherry, so buy some of that & drink it FFS.

    Have kept this 10 year Macallan Fine Oak for about three years, as a whisky drinker for 50 years, I think it is probably the best one I have ever tasted.

    I''m fairly new when it comes to single malts I''ve only been drinking them for about a year and I''ve just picked up a bottle of this tonight cheap and when I opened it, poured a glass and had a whiff I wasn''t that impressed and I thought it smelt and looked like my glenmorangie 10 year...i put a drop of water in, then left it a few mins and the smell changed to something different, almost like a bourbon but partially floral. This whiskey goes down smooth and sweet with a slight warmth that I really like. I don''t know if it''s just me but with the finish I''m getting a strong granny smith apple skin taste that is very morish, very nice whiskey I shall defiantly get this again

    Something Special For Under £50 This Is Amazing, I Got This In A Wooden Box... The Smell.... I Appreciate This Well & Truly!

    Macallan 10 Year Old / Fine Oak: Unadventurous. Brittle. You'll need your clearest nose and clean palate to pull out any fleeing flavors and a finish that runs away before you can switch on ujjayi breathing. I've tried on many different occasions. Most neglected bottle. For same money, I get a better experience elsewhere.

  • Cosmin Marginean 21 December 2013

    Nose: Heavy wood and sherry, toffee Palate: A lot of walnut, a bit of fruit and plenty of oak Finish: Smooth and lingering. Good balance A great balance and the first time I’ve experienced this combination of fruit and walnut. But maybe it’s just me.

  • Rick. 5 November 2012

    As smooth as they come. One of my favorite malts.

  • Joe Mc 30 December 2011

    A lovely, mild, warming Scotch. Fantastic price, this will not disappoint. I completely agree with Big Als' comment about sweet dough on the palette! Lovely stuff...

  • Joe from Germany 15 December 2011

    a nice smooth whisky for "newbies" (like me) for a great price! loved every drop of it last year and just ordered more of it, also more from Macallan

  • Allan 7 December 2011

    I am no expert and don't do tasting notes but for me it wasn't bad, just a bit boring

  • Steve 1 December 2011

    New bottle, new review. Its got the woody flavor I like, it even seems a little darker than before! Not as 'silky' smooth as I remember, but expressive. Has a nice kick with a reasonable aftertaste. Tastes to me of cocoa powder, and pineapple, some sherry. I like pairing this with a rich home-cooked meal more than by itself though. I'd drink it straight and warm. Not bad.

  • matt 21 October 2011

    stunning whisky for the price. the sherry oak will blow u away. macallan is the best by a mile for me

  • big Al 30 June 2011

    This is nice. undilluted It has a delicacy that is backed with an underlying power that somehow reasures its quality. wonderfull deep butterscotch, burnt caramel nose repeats itself on the pallet joined by hints of lemon curd and sweet dough. Topped off with a pleasant mouth burn that just starts to show chilli then falls back to butterscotch. I love it.

  • Anonymous 29 December 2010

    I'm torn on this. It's very pleasent and drinkable, but it's not the spectacular experience I expected. Maybe i'm just being too picky. I'd buy it again certainly.

  • Paul 22 November 2010

    I have 10 whiskeys in my cupboard at any one time, and prefer this to many more expensive whiskeys I may have open. Cracking whisky for a cracking price.

  • O.H.Draw 23 June 2010

    Yep I completely recognize what Steve experienced.I would have to agree with his comment.
