A quick review of The Macallan 10 ‘Fine Oak’ from a tasting at a bar a few months ago.
Nose: Straight-forward toffee and chocolate. Sweetness.
Palate: Medium-oily. Smoother than Glenfiddich 12 by an inch. with similar notes to the nose (toffee and chocolate.)
Finish: Very short finish.
Another one-note bar whisky. Smoother than the Glenfiddich, but the finish disappears faster than any other whisky I’ve tried. It’s a shame too, given that the one-note isn’t all that bad.
