This latest release from the Aberlour based distillery, is said to be a new interpretation of their signature 12 Years Old expression, distinctly American oak style, reflecting a perfect harmony of flavours and natural colour.
The Macallan Double Cask 12 Year Old, is said to deliver delicate flavours of vanilla, citrus and light oak, followed by the more traditional rich fruit, sherry and wood spice notes that are synonymous with The Macallan.
Commenting on the launch, Bob Dalgarno, The Macallan Master Whisky Maker, said: “This is a single malt which showcases a true balance of character which results in a fully rounded and distinctive flavour profile. By combining wood influences, we have been able to produce a new Macallan which sits perfectly between our existing Sherry Oak and Fine Oak ranges.”
The Macallan Double Cask 12 Year Old, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £55.00.
