The Macallan 12 Year Old Double Cask Gold is harvest gold colour with creamy butterscotch aromas with hints of toffee apple, candied orange, vanilla custard and newly felled oak. On the palate it is deliciously honeyed, ginger and citrus, balanced with raisins and caramel. The finish is oak lingering, warm, sweet and dry. The exceptional oak casks used for ageing this whisky are sourced, crafted, taosted and seasoned under the watchful eye of The Macalln Master Distiller. Once filled, the maturing spirit remains undisturbed in the same cask for a full twelve years. It is the oak that makes the greatest contribution to the quality, natural colour and distinctive aromas and flavours at the heart of this single malt whisky. It is the perfect partnership of Oloroso sherry seasoned American and European oak casks that creates the distinctive, warm character of this harmonious single malt.
