The Macallan Double Cask 12YO (700ml)
Double Cask 12YO
This is a single malt which tells the story of a journey; a story which brings together different worlds. To create Double Cask, The Macallan bring new oak from America across thousands of miles to Spain, where oak casks are crafted and sherry seasoned before travelling to our distillery on Speyside to mature for twelve years. These whiskies are then harmoniously united with those aged in the very best sherry seasoned European oak casks. The delicate flavour of American oak – vanilla, citrus and light oak – rises in prominence as the traditional Macallan character of rich fruit, sherry and wood spice affords a familiar back drop. This is a flavour combination which is guaranteed until the very last drop.
Aroma: Creamy butterscotch with a hint of toffee apple, candied orange, vanilla custard and newly-felled oak.
Taste: Deliciously honeyed, wood spices and balanced with raisins and caramel.
Finish: Oak lingers, warm, sweet and drying.
