The Macallan 12 Year Old Double Cask Scotch Whisky
The delicate flavor of American oak – vanilla, citrus and light oak – rises in prominence as the traditional Macallan European oak character of dried fruit, sherry and wood spice affords a familiar back drop. The result is a fresh and approachable style of Macallan, rich in flavor, honeyed and indulgent, with a full, viscous mouth feel.
The Macallan Double Cask 12 years old is 100% Sherry seasoned, and 100% natural color, in keeping with The Macallan's tradition, but unique in the fact it is defined by the unmistakable prominence of the American oak style. The Macallan brings new oak from American across thousands of miles to Spain, where casks are crafted and sherry seasoned before travelling to their distillery in Speyside, where they are filled and matured for at least 12 years.
