A brilliant double-wood expression of The Macallan with fruit-forward profile and delivered at 43% ABV

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 is famous for their Sherry infused Single Malt masterpieces. Their Double Cask series explores the influence that a combination of Oloroso and American Sherry casks have on their Single Malt. The Spanish Oloroso casks bring the rancio and spice that made Macallan famous while the American Sherry casks accentuate the vanilla and fruit notes.

Eighteen years is a magic number for Single Malts where the maximum value of cask and Spirit are achieved. The Macallan Double Cask 18 Year Old is aged a full eighteen years in first-fill Sherry casks from Spain and the US. It’s a brilliant expression of The Macallan with a bit more fruit and delivered at 43% ABV.

Dog Dogson's
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, though).

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Rich Mahogany

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma smells like it was crafted by a five-star chef with deep notes of marmalade, dried marasca cherries, sultana, gingerbread, and toffee.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavors prove the aromas with warm caramel, vanilla, ginger, mission fig, wood spices, flamed orange zest, ripe black plum, and a dash of medjool date.

The finish is medium length, warm, and satisfying with a zesty orange note.
Ratings & Reviews
I just opened the 2020 release of this dram, and while it is quite good, I would prefer to sit and enjoy the 18 YO Sherry Cask instead.
