Macallan 12 Years Old Triple Cask
Formerly known as Fine Oak, Triple Cask is part of the 2018 relaunch of the Macallan range. This has been aged for a total of 12 years in a combination of sherry and bourbon casks.
Launched in 2018, Macallan’s 12 Year Old Triple Cask Matured replaces
the much-loved Fine Oak. Always one of Speyside’s most sought-after
single malts, this Macallan has been aged for over a decade in a
combination of Sherry casks, Bourbon casks and American oak casks that

attention to detail. In the glass you’ll find a marble-smooth dram
oozing with Jamaica ginger cake, freshly hewn logs, Madagascan vanilla
ice cream, buttered granary toast with marmalade, mince pies, lemon
peel, honey, nutmeg and delicate tropical fruit (melon, papaya, mango,
“Macallan is the daddy, as far as legendary whiskies go.” So says whisky expert Ian Buxton. This Speyside behemoth enjoys huge global demand, perfectly illustrated by a 30-year-old cask breaking auction records when it sold for $375,000 (US) in Hong Kong. Deservedly so, it remains the aficionado’s choice when it comes to Scotch.
