The Macallan 12 year old whisky aged in fine sherry casks.*
*The Macallan distillery also makes a 12 year old whisky aged in fine oak, but I'm guessing the one I had was aged in sherry oak (based on both color and taste).

This Macallan smells lighter, and has less of an apple juice scent than the Johnnie Walker Black Label.

The drink was okay upon first contact, but then the spice and burn hits.

The second sip was easier than the first. 7:15PM PT
