The Macallan Sherry Oak 12 Year Old is a highly acclaimed single malt aged for twelve years entirely in former Sherry casks sourced from Jerez, Spain. A rich gold colour. On the nose, the sherry influence is prominent, accompanied by hints of ginger, wood smoke and some dried fruits. A smooth and rich balance of fruit and sherry on the palate with spices and a little smoke. Adding a little ice highlights some of the sweeter fruit flavours. A long, smooth finish with lingering wood spice flavours. All of The Macallan whiskies are bottled with their natural colour, the influence of the casks in which they are aged providing the rich colour without the need for artificial additives.
