Member Reviews and Ratings of The Macallan 15 Year Old Fine Oak
Okay, but has a bitter after taste.
Several drams from bottle I opened a good 3+ years ago that has only 1/4 left now, so I'm not tasting this now at peak flavor. I remember that it was fantastic back then, but like any other spirit, it's gonna lose something as air and empty bottle space take their toll.
I put a pour in a Glencairn to rest a while. Amber color, slow medium legs. After 20 minutes, sipped for the next hour. Definitely lost some of its zip but still wonderful apricot taste with a bit of hay. Medium mouth feel. Long finish that melted into prunes and still had some zing 5 min. later.
Next, a second pour in my Norlan. Pleasant notes of raisin in the nose. (As opposed to raisins in the nose, which would be pretty uncomfortable.) The bigger mouth of the Norlan may help with this long-opened spirit. Light mouth feel, which is to be expected (just 43%). Taste: butter, toffee. Yum. Norlan gives a different experience with lighter spirits?
Nice spirit, like an aging friend that you got to visit from time to time before it's too late. Gotta finish this bottle sooner rather than later.
Today tastes like a 7, but in its prime, at least an 8.
Interesting qualities from the oak.
Great drink for special occasions, smooth finish
Easy to drink, but I expected a bit more for the price point. Subtle, smooth, but somewhat lacking in terms of a flavor profile.
The honey vanilla fruit notes are front and center with just a touch of spice.
Smooth and complex, definitely better than the 12
All Macallans are my favorite Scotch, but for the price, very smooth and great finish.
Smooth finish. Hits all the right notes. Fantastic.
Very smooth and easy to drink
Smooth and easy to drink
Lots of sherry
Very easy drinker and smooooth. Bottle was almost gone before we realized it. Moderate sweetness with notes of honey oak and vanilla. Expensive but very tasty.
Love me some Whiskey- this was a good bottle. I could taste the oak and spice in it, a hint of sherry- smooth and pleasant to sip - highly recommend
Top pick. ...so far at least. This is the most Scotch flavored Scotch on my list. A bit dry, touch of smoke, touch of floral, but nothing takes over.
One of the finest Scotch available today.
Loved it! Would love to have a bottle on hand at all times if I could afford it.
I was expecting more from this but it is definitely easy to drink straight. If you are looking for a bite it didn't seem to come.
Spicy and a bit alcoholic attack, with some honey and vanilla in the nose. In the mouth warm, flavor of dried fruits, oak and orange zest, medium to long finish.
One of my favorite
Doesn’t hold up against its younger Sherry cask 12 yo brother - save the money and drink a better scotch
Smooth, smooth, smooth. The flavors our subtle and refined. A huge step up from the 12 and I prefer it over the 18.
Strong oak taste with a hint of citrus finish.
Vary smooth finish. Not as sweet as I thought it would be, which I liked a lot
Got this as a gift from a friend. Fell in love with the first sip, so smooth. Couldn't believe how much better this was than the Macallan 12.
Smooth, woodsy, with a nice finishing note.
Very smooth. If I could afford to make it a daily pour, I would
Enjoy the fine oak a lot. Prefer this flavor profile more then the 12 year sherry oak.
Amazing. Significantly better than Macallan 12. Worth the price.
I expected more from this as it's a spey, but it reminded me more of a lowland than a spey. That said, its flavor is subtler than other Macallans.
