Macallan, an iconic distillery located in the Speyside region of Scotland, embodies excellence and tradition in the world of single malt whisky. Founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid, Macallan is a distillery with a rich history whose whiskies are renowned for their exceptional quality.
The history of the Reid family is closely linked to the creation and growth of Macallan. Alexander Reid was the visionary behind the original distillery, which has grown significantly over the years. The Reid family has continued to play a central role in the management of the distillery, perpetuating the heritage and passion that have made Macallan an internationally renowned brand.
Terroir is an essential element in the exceptional quality of its whiskies. Vineyards stretch over acres in the Speyside region, where the rich soils and humid environment are conducive to growing barley, the key ingredient in single malt whisky. The source of the water flowing through the distillery comes from an underground spring called "The Macallan River".
The manufacturing methods are steeped in tradition and meticulousness. The malting, brewing, fermentation and distillation processes are carried out with care to Extraextract the very essence of the barley and the flavors of the terroir. Distillation takes place in traditional copper stills, contributing to the whisky's finesse and complexity.
Macallan's Speyside location is central to its identity. This region is renowned for its high-quality single malt whiskies, thanks in large part to its unique climate and terroir. The combination of pure water, rich soils and a temperate climate has resulted in whiskies that capture the very essence of the region.
Description Macallan 12 years Double Cask.
The Double Cask 12 Years Old marries classic The Macallan style with the characteristic smoothness of American oak. This is a perfectly balanced, full-bodied single malt with flavors of honey, citrus and ginger.
This whisky matured for 12 years in American and Spanish oak casks, both of which contained sherry.
A harmonious single malt with a warm character.
On the nose, caramelized notes are combined with candied notes of lemon and orange. The vanilla provided by the oak cask completes the olfactory experience.
On the palate, aromas of Secs raisins with milk chocolate and creamy caramel are accompanied by a bouquet of orange peel and sweet spices.
