Macallan Double Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky 15-year-old – A golden butterscotch colour. Dried fruit, toffee, and vanilla nose with smooth oak and baked apple.

Warm finish with ginger turning to caramel and citrus, with a lingering and creamy mouth feel.
Macallan Double Cask Whisky Distilled at The Macallan in Speyside, this single malt Scotch is matured in a combination of American and European oak casks. The Macallan brings American oak to Spain, where their bespoke casks are hand-crafted and filled with dry Oloroso sherry. Once seasoned, these casks are shipped to Scotland to be filled with new make spirit from The Macallan stills. After 15 years, the Whisky Mastery Team set about combining spirit from both types of cask to create a balanced, warm, and sweet single malt. The result is The Macallan 15-Year-Old Double Cask, bottled at 43% abv and presented at the natural colour, with all of its golden butterscotch hue coming from the oak casks.
The influence of both casks is immediately noticeable on the nose, with dried fruits and baked apple from the Spanish oak and vanilla and toffee from the American oak. The palate brings sweet raisins and sultanas, growing in intensity with undercurrents of vanilla, oak spice and citrus. The finish is warm and creamy with ginger and caramel lingering on.
Nose: Butterscotch and plump raisin, with spiced apple crumble and oak spice.
Palate: Dried fruits galore, with a dusting of cinnamon, candied ginger and orange peel.
Finish: More warming ginger alongside a drizzle of honey and buttery caramel.
