The Macallan 10 year old Fine Oak, 40%

Price: $44 Issue: Spring 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

A nicely honeyed malty foundation is balanced by fruit on the front of the palate, with a pleasingly dry, spicy finish. It would benefit by being bottled at 43%, like the older two expressions. It is simple, straight-forward, and unpretentious, as one would expect in a 10 year old whisky.
