Macallan 12 Double Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky

MACALLAN 12 DOUBLE CASK

SINGLE MALT SCOTCH

SPEYSIDE, SCOTLAND

ABOUT

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.

NOSE

Creamy butterscotch, toffee apple, candied orange, vanilla custard, and fresh oak. Dusty sherry, dried fruit, dry spiced wood.

PALATE

Ginger and nutmeg. Citrus, caramel, raisins and resinous. Savoury, tannic wood, dry dust of freshly milled wood, with some burn at the end.

FINISH

Medium-long. Slightly tart, fading into butter and marshmallow, and ending with only a slight bitter oaky char. A little thin, but inoffensive.
