A Sensorial Experience
The Story of Double Cask
Worthy of their name, our Exceptional Oak Casks are the single greatest contributor to the outstanding quality and distinctive aromas, flavours and natural colours of The Macallan. The Macallan Double Cask Range has a prominent, unmistakable sweetness which is attributed to the higher proportion of American sherry seasoned oak casks used for maturation.
Mastery of this union and the insistence of only using the finest ingredients results in a perfect partnership of both American and European oak sherry seasoned casks, that combined, create a range with extraordinary tasting notes of toffee and vanilla.
The Macallan owes its exceptional quality to our people, and it is their mastery of wood and spirit that define our whisky. Their skill, craftsmanship and creativity, passed down through many generations, create the consistent quality of every bottle.
Each sip of The Macallan is a truly sensorial experience. It is underpinned by the foundational rich, fruity, full bodied flavour which is attributed to the finest cut of the new make spirit produced from our Curiously Small Copper Stills, combined with our mastery of wood.
