Macallan 12 Year Old Double Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky
#17 on Whiskey Advocate's Top 20 Whiskies of 2017!
"Two oaks are better than one in this single malt, which marries whiskies matured in sherry-seasoned casks of both American and European oak. The sherry imparts aromas of raisins, figs, hazelnuts, blanched almonds, candied orange peel, and leather. A backbone of vanilla sweetness on the palate supports layers of ginger and white pepper, dark chocolate, leather, raisins, toasted hazelnuts, and orange oil. This Macallan joins the core line between the Sherry Oak and Fine Oak ranges. Warming and rich without being syrupy, it doubles up on accessibility with its balance and remarkably affordable price for its quality and age. —Susannah Skiver Barton"
Made from a combination of American and European oak casks seasoned in Jerez, Spain.
"A decadent nose of cloved oranges, fruit cake, shortbread cookie, and toasted sandalwood exudes from this delightful whisky. The indulgent flavors are further continued on the lush palate and resonate seemingly endlessly on the dessert-like finish."96 Points, Extraordinary, Ultimate Recommendation 2017 Ultimate Spirits Challenge
