Founded in 1824, The Macallan is one of the “Big 3” single malts in Scotland. Fortunately, they have achieved this scale without sacrificing quality. 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 12 YO is the core of The Macallan lineup. When you walk into the local pub and simply order a “Macallan,” this is what will be poured into your glass — and they are sophisticated enough to keep a quantity of it on hand. It is not “just” finished in Sherry casks. This Highlander is aged its full twelve years in Spanish Sherry wood and for aficionados this particular Whisky defines the Sherried Whisky category. That means you get creamy toffee notes all day long with a rich rancio backdrop of fig and honey. It is the perfect Whisky to introduce a newbie to the world of single malts, but it will also be one of your favorites for life.

Smartass Corner
The “Big 3” single malts are #1 Glenlivet, #2 The Macallan, and #3 Glenfiddich. Together, they produce over 20 million bottles of Whisky per year — the vast majority of which is used in their respective single malt offerings.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

Ratings & Reviews
Mario
Mario,
My baseline scotch with which to compare others.
Michael
Michael,
This is my go-to, it is smooth, a most subtle taste of peat, even Americans can tolerate the peat taste of the Macallan 12.
Matthew
Matthew,
Not as full of a mouth feel as I expected. Sherry is decent. Bit of vanilla. Watery.
David
David,
Delicious. Smooth. Vanilla. Toffee. Best when consumed neat.
Michael
Michael,
Deep reddish amber color, lots of vanilla, spice and oak on the nose. Flavor-wise, lots of plum, dried cherries, a touch of wood, leading to a slightly cinnamon-spicy finish. This is probably the prototype for a Speyside "Sherry Bomb" Scotch. Starting to get a bit expensive for what it is, but still quite good, and with a broadly appealing flavor profile this makes a great intro for those new to Scotch Whisky.

Matthew
Matthew,
Without any question, my favorite Scotch - it has a great mouth feel, lovely lingering flavors, and none of the overpowering whiskey burn. I consider myself lucky that I prefer the 12 over any of their higher priced whiskeys (although I have a 2017 limited edition I have yet to try)

Erik
Erik,
Excellent drinking experience. Was my first taste of Scotch when I was 19 and I hated it. After developing my pallet for a several years, I retried it at 25, and fell in love with the aroma and taste experience. For me, it has just enough floral flavors in contrast to the richer oaky notes that make a Whiskey what it is. In my opinion this whiskey is the ideal drink for those who enjoy time well spent and sifting through memory with a glass in hand.
