The Macallan 10 year old Sherry Oak

Another milestone whisky in my journey.  This is the standard Macallan expression in the UK (internationally the standard is a 12 year old expression so I have been unable to get a dram or bottle to more write detailed notes since moving back).  I have tried this many times and it is a smooth, sweet and rich single malt that sparked my interest in trying more scotch whisky after I attended a malt whisky tasting in July 2009 led by Gordon Muir (www.whiskytutor.com).  This is definitely become one of my "go to" single malts.   The nose has the sherry you expect and also an interesting rubber note.  The taste is classic sherried malt, rich and fruity, complex and very smooth.  Fantastic.
