Citrus, vanilla, fresh oak. Natural colour. Triple cask matured. Fine oak. An exquisite marriage of whisky matured in European & American sherry seasoned oak casks & ex-bourbon American oak casks. The Macallan Triple Cask Matured 12 years old reveals the unrivalled commitment to the mastery of wood and spirit for which The Macallan has been known since it was established in 1824. It is an expression of our enduring desire to go beyond ordinary, to seek out the extraordinary, and create peerless single malts. Our reputation for the extraordinary is characterised by the exceptional oak casks for which The Macallan is renowned. Sourced, crafted, toasted and seasoned under the watchful eye of The Macallan Master of Wood, the hand-picked casks are delivered to the demanding specifications of The Macallan Master Distiller. Once filled, the maturing spirit remains undistrubed 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 a uniquely complex combination of oak casks that delivers the extraordinarily smooth and delicate character of The Macallan Triple Cask Matured 12 years old. A trinity of spirits, matured individually in sherry seasoned European oak casks, sherry seasoned American oak casks and ex-bourbon American oak casks and then exquisitely and expertly married together to create a vibrant single malt bursting with citrus fruits, vanilla and fresh oak flavours.
