- ABV 40%
Yet another expression of this archetypal Speyside. Pure borehole water is mixed with lightly peated, ground malt. Macallan only use superior 'Golden Promise' barley malt, taking 90% of Scotland's annual crop. Fermentation in stainless steel washbacks precedes distillation in pot stills. Macallan only take the best 17% of each distillation (less than other distillers). Ten years ageing in Sherry casks gives richness. This Macallan is ideal as a gift if you're not certain of someone's tastes – the style being full and smooth without the distinct peatiness of Island malts.
Tasting note: Bright copper colour. Aromas are soft and sweet - delicate scents of honey, dried apricot, orange peel and cocoa merge with subtle toasty/ cereal notes. Off dry palate has good concentration with tannin supporting toasty cereals and spice followed by a juicy back palate burst. Clean, drying aftertaste of honey, malt and soft spice. A perfect introduction to an increasingly rare genre.40% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... Nose: Bewitching balance of heady sherry, spice and wood. Subtle rhubarby and smoky suggestions. Palate: Big, creamy nutty and spicy. An obvious rich sherry character prevails. Finish: Lingering and soothing with wood spices and soft peat. Comment: A king-pin malt which never disappoints. 40% Alc./Vol

...Oloroso appears to be the big noise here, but clever, almost meaty, incursions of spice offer an extra dimension; fruity, yet bitter-sweet: dense yet teasingly light in places; chewy fruit and the old Macallan silk is back; creamy cherries and mildly under-ripe plum ensures a sweet-sour style; traces of vanilla and barley remind us of the oak and the barley, but the fruit reverbrates for some while, as does some annoying caramel. For a great many of us it is with the Mac 10 our great Speyside odyssey began. It has to be said that in recent years it has been something of a shadow of its former great self. However, this is the best version that I have come across for a while. Not perhaps in the same league as those bottlings in the 1970s which made us re-evaluate the possibilities of single malt. But fine enough to show just how great this whisky can be when the butts have not been tainted and, towards the end, the balance between barley and grape is a relatively equal one.
