TheTheDouble Cask

THE PERFECT BALANCE OF EUROPEAN AND AMERICAN OAK

  • The Macallan Double Cask 12 years old is 100% Sherry seasoned, and 100% Natural Color, in keeping with The Macallan’s tradition, but unique in the fact it is defined by the unmistakable prominence of the 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 our distillery in Speyside, where they are filled and matured for at least 12 years. These whiskies are then harmoniously united with those aged in exceptional sherry seasoned European oak casks.

DOUBLE CASK 12 YEARS OLD

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.
