The Macallan 12 Year Old Double Cask

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship The Macallan 12 Year Old Double Cask to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Macallan 12 Double Cask Bottling Note

An exciting new age statement expression from Macallan that's matured in a combination of American and European Sherry oak for a minimum of 12 years. Here, the proportion of American oak ex-Sherry casks is higher than in the 12 Year Old Sherry Oak, but no ex-bourbon casks are used as they are in the 12 Year Old Fine Oak release.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Classic dried fruit territory, if less intense than the Sherry Oak expression. Aromatic butterscotch too.

Palate: Creamy and honeyed with some thick-cut marmalade, cinnamon and warm pastries.

Finish: Fruity with vanilla and sultana.

Macallan 12 Year Old Double Cask Reviews

☹️

Do you know, I do business with most of the whisky producers in Scotland and pretty much all whiskeys bottled in Scotland are filled , using my filling tubes.
This, is quite frankly, a particularly disappointing so called Malt.
I’ve really really tried to find its merits, but, in the final analysis , it drinks, as one previous correspondent articulated , it really drinks like a blended whiskey.
In fact, if you look at the CV of the chap who owns it, it rather places the whole issue into perspective.
If you really want to enjoy a thoroughly good malt, may I suggest Springbank.

Not bad whisky, terrible price. Will not buy again.

There is nothing wrong with this. It is quite light, with a shortish finish, but the house-style is there. As a 12 yo, you could do worse. And of course, better. I suspect those casks had been filled multiple times before they were put to work on the whisky I bought. The only real problem is that The Macallan are trying to be a "Premium", designer brand of whisky.
They are not.
As they desperately try to recoup their multimillion pound investment in the shortest possible time, they are charging much more for an inferior product.
The Scottish Government HAS TO STEP IN and rescue this national treasure for future generations.

A poor pour....

Just purchased this, my first Macallan in 20 years... The last 2 I had were a 10 and 18, both grand. This is light and wishy-washy. Them flavours are there, but they last no time at all, there’s just no body at all. If you’re new to whisky (or not), buy something more enjoyable, like a Glen Morangie or a Glen Scotia. In fact, Monkey Shoulder is better than this. Pure example of trading off a respected name. But respect only goes so far. I won’t buy “The” Macallan for another 20 years. At least.

its a nice drop

lovely creamy honey in mouth and spices in the finish here... american oak is prevalent i think..a little sherry too in there but well disguised as dried fruit. spicier than the sherry cask, and in my opinion not quite as good for my tastes.
still. its a nice drop.

Love it..

The Double Cask delivers again with expected favor and smoothness, but adding slightly more complexities. It is no 18 or even 15, but can absolutely delicious drink and good enough for any occasion~!

A great first Scotch for newcomers!

A fantastic beginning scotch! I'm not huge into the scotch world quite yet, but this is one of the best I have had!

Fruity in the front, with a nice spice to the back. Not overly smokey, but very warming, and almost "buttery" in the end!

Definite nodes of cinnamon on the first smell, some bits of vanilla in there I found.

Great starter scotch!

Superbly smooth.

In my humble opinion Macallan Whisky is the best malt I have ever tasted. 😚
