Macallan double cask 12
Macallan 12 Year Old Double Cask is the natural progression for a classic Macallan Whisky. The twelve year old blend is matured in two types of cask – American oak and European oak – giving it its distinctive character.
It has a delicious, intense and pleasant taste, without being harsh or overpowering. The whisky features notes of oak and caramel with hints of pears, dried fruits and vanilla beans.
Macallan 12 double cask is a limited edition Highland Scotch whisky. It’s the result of an experiment that started in 2012, when Macallan first filled 521 oak casks with its iconic spirit. From the beginning, Macallan was aiming for a flavour profile that would be unusual for a 12 year old whisky. After five years in these first cask strengths, the malt has been transferred to hand selected second fills – first fill European oak hogsheads, seasoned with American oak staves – and aged for another three more years before final bottling at 46% ABV.
Double cask is made with whisky matured in two separate casks – one bourbon, and one sherry. As each spirit matures, it draws flavour and character from the wood of its cask. Double cask is unique because it combines the intensity and purity of scotch whisky at its peak with the depth and complexity of older spirits.
Macallan Double Cask 12 Year Old is a sophisticated and complex expression of whiskey. Aged in oak casks until 12 years old, it has elegant notes of vanilla and dried fruit with a smooth, spicy finish.
