0 – 5 You’re The Macallan Sherry Oak 12 Years Old
This is The Macallan classic with dried fruit flavors, spices, toffee and wood smoke, and a deliciously long and smooth finish. The whisky is aged in 100% sherry-seasoned oak casks predominantly made from European Oak and is defined by the iconic, rich sherried flavor that made The Macallan famous.
7 – 10 You’re the The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old
This is aged in 100% sherry-seasoned casks defined by an unmistakable American oak style. With notes of honey, citrus and fresh oak, melded perfectly with classic Macallan hints of dried fruit, this expression is very approachable yet complex, sweet and refreshingly smooth.
