Macallan Sherry Oak 12 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Released as part of Macallan’s ever-wonderful Sherry Oak range comes this 12 year old. It has spent its entire maturation in sherry-seasoned oak casks from the home of sherry in Jerez, Spain and is bottled at 40% ABV after its 12 years of aging. It’s full of all those hallmark dried fruit and marmalade notes we’ve come to know and love from a sherried Macallan.
Nose: Crisp and sweet. There are notes of sultanas and fresh apple blossom. There is a defined floral note followed by Sherry hints. Calvados emerges with a tropical fruit note and golden syrup.
Palate: Medium-body and quite firm. There are notes of hot pastries and marmalade, sultanas and peels with a developing sweetness from the barley sugar.
Finish: Good length with a solid oaked note.
Country: Speyside - Scotland
