The Macallan Sherry Oak 25 years old forms part of our Sherry Oak range which features a series of single malt whiskies matured exclusively in hand-picked sherry seasoned oak casks from Jerez for richness and complexity. This special single malt delivers an intensely rich and full flavor character, citrus, dried fruits and wood smoke.
This distinguished single malt is matured exclusively for twenty-five years in Oloroso sherry seasoned oak casks from Jerez, Spain. Laying undisturbed in the same casks for a quarter of a century, the maturing spirit transforms to create this luxurious single malt whisky characterized by its rich flavors of vanilla, dried fruits and ginger spice with a long finish and rich mahogany color.
Superlative Speysider from Macallan, this astonishing 25 year old is one of the most revered whiskies in the world. It received a perfect 100 out of 100 score from the Beverage Testing Institute in Chicago, 1999. It also received a Gold at the International Spirits Challenge.
Nose: Very fruity, with notes of orange and pear on the nose. Also has a good dollop of sweet spices which develop into an almost smoky character. The sherry on the nose is refined and well balanced, with hints of honey and caramel.
Palate: Textbook malt delivery which gives way to a mouthful of dried apricots, prunes and figs. Hints of nutmeg and cinnamon weave in and out of an epic whack of honey that only a Speyside distillery of this kind of nobility can produce.
Finish: A long, full finish that carries fig, spices, chewy oak and a touch of light smoke.
