The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old Pint Size 375 ML
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 perfect partnership of Oloroso sherry seasoned
American and European oak casks creates the distinctive, warm character of this
harmonious single malt. Our skilled whisky making team optimize the right mix
of European and American sherry seasoned oak casks to allow the delicate and
indulgent flavors of American oak to take centre stage while the more
traditional Macallan characteristics of rich fruits, sherry and wood spice
provide a reassuringly familiar backdrop.
Every Macallan single malt 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 our enduring
desire to go beyond ordinary, to seek out the extraordinary, and create
peerless single malts.
With an unflinching commitment to put sherry casks at the
heart of The Macallan single malt, our reputation for the extraordinary is
testament to the exceptional oak casks in which we mature our spirit. Sourced,
crafted, toasted and seasoned under the watchful eye of The Macallan Master of
Wood, these hand-picked casks are delivered to the demanding specifications of
The Macallan Master Distiller and his team.
Once filled, the maturing spirit remains undisturbed in
the same casks for the necessary number of years it needs to be worthy of its
destined Macallan expression. It is these oak casks that make the greatest
contribution to the quality, natural color and distinctive aromas and flavors
which lie at the heart of The Macallan single malt.
