The Macallan 12 Year Triple Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky 750ml
The 2019-release of Macallan 12 Year Single Malt Scotch 18-Year-Old triple-cask-matured single malt. Aged in a combination of sherry-seasoned European and American oak casks, as well as ex-bourbon casks, this is a fruity Highland single malt with notes of citrus, dried fruit, bitter cocoa, and oak spice throughout the palate.
Occasionally, as with fine wines, a small amount of precipitate may appear in The Macallan. This results from the characteristic ingredients of malt whisky and has no effect upon the taste or flavor, nor any adverse effect upon health. It is a phenomenon normally confined to the highest quality wood-aged malt whiskies.
The Macallan 12 Year Single Malt Scotch is the most sought-after whisky for collectors, and here you’ll find a huge range of Macallan Scotch whisky to buy online. Over the past four decades, Macallan has built probably the best reputation for quality malt whisky; rare expressions can change hands for thousands of pounds, and prices for such bottles are continuously going up.
Single malt whisky is the product of a single distillery, and it is distilled from nothing but malted barley, yeast, and water. After distillation, it must then be matured in oak casks for at least three years before bottling, though all of the whiskies on this page have been aged for a minimum of 18 years. 18-year-old single malts make the superb coming of age presents or general gifts for Father’s Day or Christmas.
A caramel amber color. Strong legs that easily coat the side of a glass and linger.
Sherry, spiced plums, mixed berry preserves, warm cinnamon toast, butter.
Sweet, dry sherry, salted butter on a toasted English muffin. Clean and uncomplicated, yet full and satisfying.
Continued sherry notes from the nose right on through the finish. Charred oak on the back end with long, lingering tannic notes punctuated by sweet and very slightly salty caramel.
