"Some malt lovers argue that the traditional Macallan is dominated by sherry. I disagree. In my view, The Macallan is a bigmalt, with character and complexity to shine through any amount of sherry. Those attributes are clear for all to see when American oak is substituted. The typical Macallan characteristics are evident throughout the Fine Oak range!" -Michael Jackson
