The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old forms part of our Double Cask range which marries the classic Macallan style and the unmistakable sweetness of American oak. This is a fully rounded Single Malt in perfect balance, with flavors of honey, citrus, and ginger. The sherry imparts aromas of raisins, figs, hazelnuts, blanched almonds, candied orange peel, and leather. The Macallan 12 Yr Double joins the core line between the Sherry Oak and Fine Oak ranges.
Creamy butterscotch with a hint of toffee apple, candied orange, vanilla custard, and newly felled oak.
Deliciously honeyed, wood spices and citrus, balanced with raisins and caramel.
Oak lingers, warm, sweet, and drying.
The perfect partnership of Oloroso sherry seasoned American and European oak casks creates the distinctive, warm character of this harmonious single malt. We optimize the right mix of European and American sherry seasoned oak casks. We allow the delicate and indulgent flavors of American oak to take center stage while the more traditional Macallan characteristics of rich fruits, sherry and wood spice provide a reassuringly familiar backdrop. The Macallan 12 Year Old Double Cask has a festive aroma of fruitcake and match heads. In conclusion, it is a bit lighter on the nose than its Sherry Oak sibling.
