Macallan 18 Year Old Double Cask
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 43%
Macallan is famed for sherry maturation and here, like with the 15-year-old double cask, we see the result of maturation in both sherry seasoned American oak and sherry seasoned European oak. The vanilla from the American oak coupled with the spiciness of the European oak makes this a sweet and warming dram.
The 3 years additional ageing over the 15 year old gives depth and complexity with plenty of raisins and sultanas as you would expect...
Nose: Dried fruit, ginger and toffee. Rich orange with hints of clove and nutmeg.
Palate: Rich raisin and sultana with notes of caramel, vanilla and ginger, balanced by wood spice and zesty citrus.
Finish: Warm oak spice with ginger, turning to sweet orange.
