In the late 20th Century Macallan earned reputation for big sherried whisky. The distillery even claimed that all their spirit is aged exclusively in sherry wood. In 2004 however, The Edrington Group, Macallan parent company, launched multi million-dollar campaign for Fine Oak series, range of Macallan single malts aged in combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. The Macallan purists expressed their disappointment, while most of the whisky drinkers approached new range quite compassionately. All in all, Fine Oak series established itself rather well, giving different perspective for the Macallan malt. The 12 years old expression is aged in Spanish oak seasoned with sherry and American oak seasoned with bourbon and with sherry.
