Macallan 15yo Fine Oak is matured in a combination of 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. This one is probably the pick of the (Fine Oak) bunch. "Takes time to open but worth the wait. The complete package and arguably the best. 9¼/10" Dave Broom, Whisky Magazine.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • Colour:

      Rich Straw.

    • Nose:

      Full aroma with hints of rose and cinnamon.

    • Palate:

      Intense rich chocolate, with hints of orange and raisins.

    • Finish:

      Lingering with chocolate, hints of orange and dried fruit.

    • Comment:

      The Fifteen Year Old expression of Fine Oak brings out the fantastic aromatic qualities of The Macallan whisky. This is perhaps the star of the range, balancing delicacy and finesse with richness on the palate.

    February of 2017, I bought my first bottle of scotch, and I admit, I meant it for a finish to a headache of a day after work. Macallan was my second taste of scotch, and it far succeeded my first; I was not expecting to get hit with the plethora of flavor that hit me that night. Smooth, rich flowery taste, quite a heavenly far cry from the $15 bottles of cheap American whiskey I was used to downing in my 20's. Before that night, I don't remember a time when I appreciated a drink for the palate rather than for the fringe benefits. They say you get what you pay for, and Macallan doesn't disappoint.

    I’ve seen some harsh reviews for this scotch but I really like it. While Macallan is a top quality mainstream scotch this offering fits into a more underground feel. The smooth balance of the Mac 18 and 25 give way to in your face, bold barrel flavor from the fine oak. The opening is standard Macallan but the mid range mouth feel is best paired with free form jazz, death metal or hardcore trance music. This scotch is spicy and raw while maintaining complete control. The finish starts to pull you in then fades quickly leading to another taste of what has become one of my favorites. Not recommended for beginners but I have a large collection of scotch and still throw down a sip of this one regularly and think it is good for collections. If you are new to scotch and looking for your first good bottle I recommend Glenmorangie’s Nectar D or. similar price and it will addict you to the world of good scotch.

    Best malt I've tasted. Log fire and a few glasses of 15 year old Mac, almost Heaven:-)

    An extraordinary malt. This is like 12 Fine Oak yo, but offers more depth and complexity. The sherry and bourbon influence is absolutely top quality. This one needs time to open like Dave Broom said. This is not for easy going saturday drinkers, many people might prefer 12 yo Fine Oak instead. I agree with Sampo, the best or one of the best whiskies in my cabin. Maybe we should go in Pikkulintu someday?

  • Jason's Scotch Whisky Reviews 4 September 2012

    "Nose": Sherry. No surprise there. Oranges. Spices, peat and Marlboro smoke. Interesting and inviting a sip. "Palate": Orange marmalade, slight vanilla, a transition to summer savory, and other herbal notes before the arrival of some oak. "Finish": Orange peel. Mint and a little ginger before fading to heavy lashes of sea salt.

    I indulge in the 12 year from time to time, and it 's very good. The 15, to me, was a little disappointing upon first open-sniff-sip. HEH! Give it a minute sonny! I don't think I've ever had a scotch so sweet & smooth. Of course for the price you expect as much. Yet, whereas I can understand some opinions of being not as flavorful or complex as the 12 year, it is in fact better. Superior nose & smoothness with no bite at all; wish I could afford this all the time!

  • Sampo S. 18 May 2011

    Hands down the best whisky in my collection.. The nose is so complex that i just want to smell it for 20 minutes before taking a sip! I get a definite marzipan smell there as well. A Connoisseur malt to the bone.

  • Justin 12 May 2011

    Tried this first at the Sofitel St. James in London and fell in love with it after the first taste. It has a very rich, deep flavour but without any sense of smokiness. The sweet tones means it goes well after dinner but also is a very accessible whiskey for those who aren't usually scotch drinkers.

    I first tried this at my sons wedding and was hooked ever since,I have drank many over the years being a Scotsman,and now in my latter years enjoy it at every opportunity.

  • Anonymous 17 March 2010

    Why is it called Fine Oak when I think it comes in a glass bottle? I can't understand how they get away with it!

  • trebor 23 November 2009

    One of the best noses on a Macallan - deep vanilla oak with just a hint of smoke. Lush, lush soft but full taste and medium long fig and barley finish which rushes to meet you. A superb quality malt sure to be much sought after.

  • trebor 21 November 2009

    Lots of vanilla - barley to start then a rush of soft fruit. Very nice offering from Macallan. I much prefer the rounded
