Macallan 12 Year Old Sherry
This is the new range from Macallan a fantastic new bottle and different whiskies for the new distillery. Macallan are famous for using only the finest sherry casks, something I think everyone can agree they do very well. This whisky uses only sherry casks the European oak sherry casks that are full of rich red fruits and tannins.
There are a lot of flavours going on in the nose, lots of dried fruit and warm spice surrounded by vanilla. The palate livens up bringing in much more of the sherried fruit and a little toasted oak. A very long finish that leaves a sweet oaky flavour.
