The Macallan Fine Oak 15 years old

The Macallan Fine Oak 15 years old, 43% abv

Immediate freshness with light fruit and warm bananas with a soft introduction of warm grass on the nose. Sensation of grasses emerging under a hot sun while sitting under the shade of a tree with a bowl of fruit. In spite of the shade it is still hot. Grass with a hint of licorice tantalize the medium finish.

Deep intense and rich aromas of warm nut bread with a light touch of spice of the nose. The sherry is present but more subdued, sharing the stage with vanilla notes. Well balanced with toffee and tobacco presence on the palate. Dry sherry grasses dominate a medium long finish. A very remarkable dram.
