The Macallan 12 Year Old Double Cask (Whisky Advocate # 17)

The Macallan 12 Year Old Double Cask (Whisky Advocate # 17)

The Macallan Distillery:
“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 back drop. The result is a fresh and approachable style of Macallan, rich in flavor, honeyed and indulgent, with a full, viscous mouth feel. Suitable for all occasions, Double Cask 12 years old will appeal to existing and new Macallan drinkers alike.”
