Macallan Triple Cask Matured 15 year old
Macallan 15yo Fine Oak is matured in a combination of Bourbon & Sherry Oak Casks. This range has been around for a few years now and seems to have weathered the storm it caused amongst the faithful when it was initially released. This one is probably the pick of the (Fine Oak) bunch. “Takes time to open but worth the wait. The complete package and arguably the best. 9¼/10” Dave Broom, Whisky Magazine.
Introduced in mid-2018, the Triple Cask range takes the place of Fine Oak in the Macallan stable. This expression is made exclusively with whisky aged for at least 15 years in a combination of European sherry seasoned casks, American sherry seasoned casks and American ex-bourbon casks.
The Macallan Triple Cask Matured 15 Years Old forms part of our Triple Cask Matured range; a series of single malt whiskies crafted in a triple cask combination of European and American sherry seasoned oak casks and American ex-bourbon oak casks. An expert marriage of these three distinct cask types, this is a sublime single malt with vibrant orange and chocolate flavours. Rich Straw color. Full aroma with hints of rose and cinnamon. Intense palate of rich chocolate, with hints of orange and raisins.
Nose: Citrus blossom, hot chocolate, cardamom seed, treacle.
Palate: Quince, salted butter, poached pear, a hint of cigar box.
Finish: Lasting cinnamon and raisin, with a touch of lemon.
