MACALLAN 12 DOUBLE CASK
SINGLE MALT SCOTCH
Macallan’s first new release with an age statement bucks the trend of non-age statement Scotch whiskies that has grown over the past few years.
Filling the gap between the Macallan 12 Year Old Sherry Oak and Fine Oak, this release is the best of both worlds, matured in American and European oak casks that were previously used to age sherry.
The result is a fresh and approachable style of Macallan, rich in flavour, honeyed and indulgent, with a full, viscous mouth feel. Suitable for all occasions, Double Cask 12 years old will appeal to existing and new Macallan drinkers alike.
Creamy butterscotch, toffee apple, candied orange, vanilla custard, and fresh oak. Dusty sherry, dried fruit, dry spiced wood.
Ginger and nutmeg. Citrus, caramel, raisins and resinous. Savoury, tannic wood, dry dust of freshly milled wood, with some burn at the end.
Medium-long. Slightly tart, fading into butter and marshmallow, and ending with only a slight bitter oaky char. A little thin, but inoffensive.
