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.

Mark
Mark,
Love the smokey flavored tasted! You can feel in right in your nose if you drink it neat. Love it!
 
ANDREOUS
ANDREOUS,
I want to start off by saying I am a BIG Dalmore fan, so I am new to this label. It was not what I was expecting, to the noise from two different style glasses this was very strong. After sitting in the glass a few minuets both softened, but still stronger then what I like. The taste was pleasant but and I got some of the citrus and honey but none of the ginger. Over all I will try it again and see if I come out with a different result.

A classic for any occasion, always a good order when out and about.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Really enjoy. Nothing crazy, my first bottle of whiskey
 
Tom
Tom,
This would be the Scotch that almost any whiskey drinker could enjoy. It's smooth and has a tolerable level of peatiness that is just complex enough to satisfy the pallet if your in the mood for a change from your standard whiskey.

Outstanding sipping scotch. Pare with a fine cigar and you wont be disappointed.
 
Justin
Justin,
You just can’t go wrong with the Macallan. Exceedingly smooth, tasteful, and at a reasonable price. Worth a permanent spot on the shelf. The 10 year triple cask is great too and even cheaper if you want to try it out. I think the 12 is worth the extra few bucks, but the 10 is close enough to let you know if you’re going to like the triple/double cask Macallans of any vintage.
 
Vincent
Vincent,
I get the main components; Oak, Vanilla. I also get the Citrus and the Orange Zest, but not the Caramel. My go to Scotch!
 
Michael
Michael,
Not my favorite, but it's good. Sweet and spicy. Taste a little bit of wood, vanilla, citrus and I think the spice is coming from ginger. It's warm, smooth and has a long lingering finish. I tried it neat, with a couple of drops of water and on the rocks. Enjoyed it best on the rocks. I'm going to enjoy the bottle, but probably won't purchase again
 
Israel
Israel,
My first introduction to scotch whiskey. Got for my 30th birthday. Really can't say much about this because I can't compare it to others. Smooth vanilla flavor balances the strong oak profile. There is almost a peat-like aroma, but nothing that lingers. Definitely worth having a bottle around.

Very smooth. Great drinkability.

Very smooth, almost too smooth. But nice.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Sweet. Vanilla and caramel, very smooth and highly drinkable. Doesn't surprise you with complexity or do anything interesting but pleasant enough.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
I could taste the oak and spice in it, a hint of sherry- smooth and definitely easy to drink straight.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
While I enjoyed the Macallan, it is not my favorite. A little harsh at first but overall not bad. I had high hopes.
 
Freddy
Freddy,
Neat for the first few sips, than ad 2-3 drops of water to release aromas. This is truly a treat to the palate.
 
Jamie
Jamie,
Slightly sweet, spices like ginger and cinnamon, dried fruits, really enjoyable smooth scotch.
 
John
John,
Great intro to a Scotch Whisky! This started me on the path to learn as much as I can about Whisky.
 
guest
guest,
Very enjoyable to sip, I love it in an old fashioned. A good fairly affordable scotch. I took another taste-sized portion after looking at the flavor spiral and taste the vanilla, honey, caramel, spice, and oak.
 
Brian
Brian,
Just picked up a bottle last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it! I prefer mine neat.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Not a fan. I prefer the sweet flavors, this one tastes more of the charred oak.
 
Stephen

such a good scotch. Super smooth with hints of honey that just improve the flavor.

Josh
Josh,
Easily one of my favorite drams in this price range. The flavors blend in a way were you don't loose the distinctiveness of either, but rather get double the punch. The vanilla gives it a mouthfeel like cream soda, but isn't so sweet to drown out the complexity of the European casks.
 
guest

Favorite of the 12 years great for a very good scotch if you don’t want to spend extremely high dollar

creamy vanilla finish
 
Bianca
Bianca,
Very nice, however, I still prefer the original 12 year.
 
Alison
Alison,
I thought the flavor profile fell a little flat. For full disclosure, however, I usually drink stronger profile bourbons and American whiskeys. With that said, it was smooth and drinkable with light notes. It was not a peaty scotch, which I liked, nor was it overly smokey. It kind of reminded me of Jamison. I wouldn't buy it, but I'd drink it.
 
Brad
Brad,
Liked it , a Carmella hint !!!!

Liked it. Was what I expected.

It wasn't what I thought it would be. Taste was a tad bit strong, but ok for a 12 year old.

Jason
Jason,
Very good but not a smooth as other 12 year olds They have made in the past.
 
guest
guest,
Warm and full at the nose. Berries, vanilla, oak, slight lemon, a little salt. Full mouthfeel, oak, vanilla, pepper and spice. Finishes with vanilla, gentle spice. A nice Highland dram!
 
Marshall
Marshall,
Quite smooth, despite some other reviews. the only tasting note not mentioned by flaviar missed was a bit of chocolate
 
Daniel
Daniel,
It was ok, l like it a little more smooth.
 
CJ
CJ,
A little too fruity and sweet to my liking.
 
Leo
Leo,
Don’t add water! It gets more harsh. Neat is better.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Don't get me wrong, it's a fine whiskey, but I much prefer the "normal" Macallan 12
 
Daniel
Daniel,
I like it. Could use a bit more smooth. I do taste the honey which is long lasting and great tasting once the punch wares off.
 
Charles
Charles,
Slightly spicy but cut nicely by the Sherry. Short lived though.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
This is a very smooth Speyside - perfect for when you don't want the spice of a Talisker or the bite of an Ardbeg. It has a Vanilla and Citrus nose with a hint of caramel. The Sherry slides its way in after. Can't go wrong for the price too!
 
Guy
Guy,
This is very tasty single malt with hints of vanilla, caramel and full body but surprisingly smooth. I love it!

Different but I like it for the price
 
Lynn
Lynn,
Very nice start. The finish very surprisingly different. Pleasant.
 
John
John,
Nice, incredibly smooth. Vanilla and nutmeg, pine resin nose. Spices on pallet, long sweet finish.
 
Kyle
Kyle,
The double cask gives it a touch of a bourbon flavor, and takes any edge off. There's little edge on a 12 year Macallan though!
 
Brian
Brian,
By far, my favorite scotch. Powerful, yet smooth and unique
 
Abhi
Abhi,
Better than other 12's
 
Gregory
Gregory,
How about a set for Japanese Whiskey's set of 5 or 6.
