Macallan Gold Double Cask
This is the new range from Macallan a fantastic new bottle and different whiskies for the new distillery. This is an an unusual one for the distillery. Macallan are famous for using only the finest sherry casks, something I think everyone can agree they do very well. This whisky still uses only sherry casks but two different types of oak. First is the more common European oak sherry casks that are full of rich red fruits and tannins. The seconds casks are American oak.
The aroma brings lemon citrus, orange peel with an interlacing sweetness of vanilla and dark chocolate.
On the palate there is yet more citrus and boiled sweets with hints of warming spice, giving way to baked apples.
The finish is sweet and a little dry.
