The nose is sweet and fruity. The palate starts sweet but gets drier. It then develops a peppery note that adds complexity and moves it into the finish. This is from a refill bourbon cask, and while I haven't been a huge fan of bourbon cask Macallans in the past, this one is really good. I'd always associated the Macallan profile with sherry, but something about this feels very Macallan even without the sherry influence.

n:  Cigar humidor aging orange peels.

 

p:  Nice mouthfeel.  Antique wood + small hint of christmas spices and honey.  Peppery-ness extends for a long finish.  Wish the Fine Oak series had been more like this.

 

B+/A-

Amber. Nose has subtle spice, suprisingly slight nose. There is some light apple, the right amount of malt, good and balanced between sweet and spice. The tongue is interesting. Kinda like a Macallan light. Tend to agree with Sku, that one can tell this is a Macallan, but in a weird background kind of way. Interesting, good stuff. B/B+ [2/28/15] 
Ries
 

n: floral and tempered oak (very bourbon-y). New leather bound book and dried orange peel. 

 

t: oak and vaniila frosting sweetness with a tangerine peel. Middle is more rounded spice. Very gentle and cohesive. Baked green apple finish with a touch of burnt toffee.  [I'd never guess this was Macallan]
