Side by side: A swoop of Macallans?

Rather than review drams by themselves I'm doing a little series comparing some 'side by side'.
There may be two or more, they may be from the same or different distilleries, similar ages, ABVs and types or not as I decide!

This time we are reviewing three different drams from the @Macallan distillery aged range, the 10yo Sherry Oak, 12yo Double Cask and 12yo Fine Oak - what differences are there?
