There is probably no other name in the world of Scotch Whisky that comes close to the Macallan for recognition and reputation. Founded in 1824 the Macallan distillery was one of the first licensed distilleries in Scotland and this long history has helped make the Macallan arguably the most famous Scotch distillery in the world. Scotch Whisky releases from the Macallan are sought after globally by both drinkers of fine whisky, and collectors alike.
The Macllan Fine Oak 12 Years Old is triple cask matured in a combination of sherry seasoned European oak casks, sherry seasoned American oak casks and American oak casks seasoned with bourbon. The Macallan Triple Cask 12 Years Old still uses a higher proportion of sherry casks than most other single malts and these flavours are evident in the bottle. The result is a diverse yet subtle style of whisky with flavours of citrus, vanilla and coconut in abundance. A lighter, more versatile way to enjoy all the very best of The Macallan’s flavours and aromas.
To taste expect a complex and smooth whisky with hints of citrus, vanilla, and light toasted oak and nutmeg. The finish is lingering with melon, papaya, fresh oak, and oak spice.
