The Macallan 12 Year Old Sherry Matured Single Malt Scotch Whisky 750ml - 1 Bottle

Availability: In stock

Pretty Good

Long considered the finest 12 year old whisky in the world, this expression of Macallan has only recently become available in Australia again. As world sales of sherry have declined, sherry casks have become harder to find and as a result prices for these whisky tend to have dramatically increased. What partly makes Spanish sherry barrels so special is the oak itself, which research has shown that tannins in the wood act as a catalyst that aids oxidation during the maturation period hence being a highly desirable commodity in malt whisky production.. The deep colour and distinct rich, fruity / citrus peel flavours (sometimes marmalade-like) that ex-sherry casks can impart makes them utterly unique. A spicy, mouth filling profile including hazelnut, cocoa, oatmeal biscuit and pepper. Vanilla malt mingles with traces of cinnamon and sulphur into the finish. Long, complex and surprisingly robust. Ridiculous value.
