The Macallan Double Cask 18YO (700ml)
Double Cask 18YO
The Macallan Double Cask 18 Years Old is a perfectly balanced single malt whisky created by bringing the perfect harmony of two oaks into one exceptional single malt whisky. Sherry seasoned American oak adds delicate vanilla to the subtle spice of European oak, delivering a whisky with a sweeter, warmer taste, and character. The Macallan Double Cask 18 Years Old has a rich amber honey tone, and imparts notes of dried fruits, ginger and toffee. A warm oak spice finish is balanced by citrus flavours of sweet orange.
The Macallan brings American oak to Spain, where the casks are crafted by hand and filled with dry Oloroso sherry. Once seasoned, the casks are shipped to the Speyside distillery and filled with ‘new make’ spirit. Following 18 years of slumber, the Whisky Mastery Team selects the perfect balance of spirit from both casks to create a unique single malt with a sweet, warm character. The amber honey colour is 100% natural and comes from our exceptional oak casks.
