The classic Lagavulin is kilned with a high smoke content in the malt. The stills are pear-shaped, so that all flavors can be passed on to the condensers during distillation. The Single Malt then matures in Bourbon and Sherry casks to completion.
With the fine-oak range, Macallan steered away from their typical distillery character by adding ex-bourbon casks into the mix of sherry casks. It's fine, delicate and mild with floral and citrus notes.
