The Macallan 12 YO Double Cask springs from a very “deep bench.”

Founded in 1824, The Macallan is one of the “Big 3” single malts in Scotland. Fortunately, they have achieved this scale without sacrificing quality. A change in UK labeling laws aced them out of their “Speyside” designation. But just because the British Parliament gerrymandered the “official” boundaries doesn’t mean Whisky-lovers have to pay any attention. Their achievements are numerous — including setting the record price ever paid at auction for a single bottle of Scotch. They produce a very broad range of world-class single malt Whiskies that have a huge global following.

The Macallan has been creating single malt Whisky for so long at such a high volume and such a high level that they have what sports teams call a very “deep bench.” Their incredible inventory of rare, aging single malt gives them the ability to pinpoint flavours for the refined Whisky palate. The Macallan 12 YO Double Cask is one of these tasty niche experiments. It’s their classic single malt aged a full twelve years in both American Sherry and European Sherry casks — without a Bourbon barrel in sight. The American side brings toffee, vanilla, and ginger notes while the European side brings flavors of sultana, orange zest, and citrus curd.
