Postby Elagabalus » Sat Jan 27, 2007 4:25 am

Has anyone ever tried this? I know the site says it good on the rating feature part. Has anyone here ever tried it, and could you tell me what you thought about it? Thanks a bunch!!

Happy that Robbie Burns day! I wish I had some haggis. That stuff is delicious!!!!

The 10 CS has a great reputation and seems to be well liked by WM forum members.

I think it could be the ordinary Macallan sherry finish that Elgarabalus is asking about or it could be the fine oak. He doesn't really say.

if your getting a macallan 10yo go for the sherry oak, thats the true macallan style whisky.

And i'll have a third...

One of my early whisky experiences, way before they needed to call it "sherry oak", and still pretty good. Maybe not the most complex whisky in the world - tho' the 18 YO version is usually terrific( though sadly the price almost doubled in the last 3 years) but good for the fruitcakes among us..

(I mean lovers of fruity, rich, sherry infused drams...)

I thought we were all fruitcakes.

I don't eat fruitcake as I am against cannibalism.

The 10yo Fine Oak has just been launched in Australia.

There's also a few whispers going around that we're soon going to see the return of some sherry Macallans to our market. :) :D 8)

The Macallan 10yo sherry wood, was one of the whiskies that got me into whisky. It was the first non-peated whiksky that got my attention. It is not a great whisky, but a great introduction to sherried malts.

I've always found it a little odd that the 10 Sherry is available in the UK and not the 12 which is quite a bit better.

The 10yo Sherry Cask Macallan can compete on price in the supermarkets with the likes of Glenlivet, Glenmorangie and Balvenie. The 12yo when it can be found here is around the price of a Glenlivet 18 or Glenmorangie 15. At that price I'm not even tempted!

Well that makes a lot of sense, the Macallan 12 is more expensive that most other over here also, twice the price of Aberlour 10 if I have my figures correct.
