Two worlds unite to create the perfect harmony within one exceptional single malt whisky ? The Macallan Double Cask. To create this distinctive Macallan, new oak from America is brought across thousands of miles to Spain, where casks are crafted and sherry seasoned before travelling to the distillery on Speyside to mature. These whiskies are then harmoniously united with those aged in the very best European sherry seasoned oak casks. As American oak imparts delicate flavours of vanilla, citrus and butterscotch while European oak delivers the unmistakable subtle spice of The Macallan, mastery of this union results in a perfect balance of two styles that creates a distinctive range with an extraordinary fusion of vanilla and subtle spice. Absolutely wonderful. The Macallan Double Cask 15 Years Old pours a golden butterscotch hue with aromas of dried fruit, toffee and vanilla with smooth oak and baked apple, balanced with notes of honey and chocolate. On the palate, the sweet raisin and sultana builds with hints of vanilla, wood spice and citrus, ending with a warm and lingering finish with ginger notes turning to caramel and citrus.
