The Macallan 12 Year Double Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Harvest sun. Creamy butterscotch with a hint of toffee apple, candied orange, vanilla custard and newly felled oak. Deliciously honeyed, wood spices and citrus, balanced with raisins and caramel. Oak lingers, warm, sweet and drying.
Since 1824, The Macallan Distillery has remained uncompromisingly traditional in most every way, even aging every drop of the malt exclusively in Spanish Sherry oak casks. They have met the ever-increasing demand for The Macallan from all over the world with a full range of products that many spirits aficionados consider to be the finest in the world.
“A good gulp of hot Scotch Whisky at bedtime–it’s not very scientific, but it helps!”
Alexander Fleming, Scottish inventor of penicillin, prescribed it as a cure for the common cold. Today Single Malt Scotch Whiskies are prized by enthusiasts and aficionados the world over for their rarity, age and complexity. By definition these must be produced in Scotland from a single distillery and made entirely from malted barley, using a pot still. The appearance, aroma and flavor of a Single Malt Scotch Whisky can vary widely depending on whether it was produced in the Highlands, Lowlands Islands, Speyside, Islay or Campbelltown regions.
