I would like to try the Macallan Fine Oak Range.

The 15 & 17 are both highly rated. (I'm not sure of the 17 is a US only expression).

The 15yo is a lot like the 12yo. I think the 17yo is slightly better, but not worth the price. So, I'd recommend the 15yo.

I can;t get to grips with the fine oak series at all. I know that many rave about them, but when I tried the range at WL Glasgow 05, I was really disappointed. I far prefer their sherried efforts.

A lovely little (Freudian?) slip there SP as your poll seems to offer an inadvertant comment about the price of some Macalloans! :lol:

I also don't particularly like the FO range and would personally prefer a more traditional and sherried Macallan. But I do realise that we all have different tastes and preferences, so good luck with whichever you decide upon.

Haven't had the 17. Thought the 15 was a nice malt. Comparison to sherried Macs is inevitable, I guess, but it makes as much sense to me to say "I'd rather have an Ardbeg." That wasn't the question!

Macalloan! That's hilarious!! Too bad that was an accident and not intentional!

Tattie,
If you didn't submit, at least in part, a response that wasn't a little of topic, I'd be worried about you :D . Maybe I should just grab an Ardbeg 10 8)

I thought I was trying to keep the other guys on-topic! :P

I like the FO15 quite a lot; I just have to think of it as another Speysider other than Macallan. It has lots of flavour and many good qualities.
