The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old is 100% sherry-seasoned and 100% natural color, in keeping with The Macallan’s tradition, yet unique in the fact that it is defined by the unmistakeable prominence of an American oak style. The Macallan brings new oak from America across thousands of miles to Spain, where casks are crafted and sherry-seasoned before traveling to the distillery in Speyside, where they are filled and matured for at least 12 years. These whiskies are then harmoniously united with those aged for at least 12 years in exceptional sherry-seasoned European oak casks.
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 foundation. Suitable for all occasions, Double Cask 12 Years Old will appeal to existing and new Macallan drinkers alike. The fresh and approachable character of Double Cask 12 Years Old also serves as the perfect complement to its slightly more robust counterpart, the Sherry Oak 12 Years Old.
