Two distinct oaks create the perfect harmony within one exceptional single malt whisky. Macallan's Double Cask whiskies are aged in two types of oak, in specially selected hand-crafted casks seasoned with dry Oloroso sherry. American oak imparts delicate flavours of vanilla, citrus and butterscotch. European oak delivers the unmistakable subtle spice of The Macallan. After a full 15 years of maturation, these two exceptional whiskies are married to become a distinctive single malt with a sweeter, warmer taste and character.
Nose: Dried fruit, toffee and vanilla with smooth oak and baked apple. Balanced with notes of honey and chocolate.
Palate: Sweet raisin and sultana builds with hints of vanilla, wood spice and citrus.
Finish: Warm with ginger turning to caramel and citrus, with a lingering and creamy mouth feel.
