The Macallan - Double Cask 12 Years Old - 70cl
The Macallan Double Cask 12 years old reveals the unrivalled commitment to the mastery of wood and spirit for which The Macallan has been known since it was established in 1824. It is an expression of of enduring desire to go beyond ordinary, to seek out the extraordinary, and create peerless single malts.
The perfect partnership of Olrosso sherry seasoned American and European oak casks creates the distinctive, warm character of this harmonious single malt.The delicate and indulgent flavours of American oak including vanilla, citrus and butterscotch take centre stage while the more traditional Macallan characteristics of rich fruits, sherry and ginger provide a reassuringly familiar backdrop.
Nose - Creamy butterscotch with a hint of toffee apple, candied orange, vanilla custard and newly felled oak.
Palate - Deliciously honeyed, ginger and citrus balanced with raisins and caramel.
Finish - Oak lingers, warm, sweet and drying.
