I purchased The Macallan Fine Oak 10 Years Old when it went on sale at NCABC for about $45 which seemed to be a bargain for any single malt from The Macallan. The 40% ABV whisky was perfect neat without any hot or higher alcohol flavors. The aroma was filled with honey and fruit with hints of leather, oak, and earth. The flavor showcased honey up front followed by fruit with a finish of leather and oak. While a touch sweet at first the flavor mellowed into the aftertaste as the sweet notes faded into oblivion. The issue with this scotch, if there is one, is it needs to be consumed with a clean palate because this nuances of this whisky which are complex and interesting could be trounced by a strong flavor before or with this scotch. So if you find this one at an affordable price give it a whirl, you really do have nothing to lose.
