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.

Ratings & Reviews
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!

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,
How about a set for Japanese Whiskey's set of 5 or 6.
