The Macallan Double Cask 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
The Macallan Double Cask 12 Year Old is a honeyed, indulgent and rounded single malt, its character defined by the un mistable prominence of the American Oak style. A beautiful partnership, as sunshine and rain create a spectacular rainbow, so the pairing of sherry seasoned European and American oak casks combine in a perfect harmony of flavours and natural colour. The delicate flavour of American oak - vanilla, citrus and light oak - takes centre stage as the traditional Macallan character of rich fruit, sherry and wood spice affords a familiar backdrop. It is this partnership that reveals an unmatched investment in time and extraordinary commitment to mastery for which the Macallan has been known since 1824. The Macallan brings new oak from America across thousands of miles to Spain, where casks are crafted and sherry seasoned before travelling to our distillery in Speyside. Here they are filled with the new make spirit and left to mature for twelve years. These whiskies are then harmoniously united with those aged in exceptional sherry seasoned European oak casks.
Colour of Harvest Sun, the Macallan Double Cask 12 Year Old shows off an aroma of creamy butterscotch with a hint of toffee apple, candied orange, vanilla custard and newly felled oak. On the palate, one will enjoy honeyed wood spices and citrus, balanced with raisins and carmel. A warm, sweet and drying lingering oak finish rounds this beautiful scotch out.
