The Macallan Double Cask Whisky:
Releases from The Macallan commonly serve as a solid example of several core attributes contained within a host of arguably more complicated Scotch whiskies. Malt notes are typically clear, and the impact of wood in the aging process is readily apparent.
The Macallan Double Cask is a non-peated single malt from the Speyside region of Scotland that sips cleanly while also featuring additional maturation in sherry casks. This is the source of the name for the line of Macallans to which this dram belongs; Sherry Oak. Bottled at 40% ABV for most markets and 43% ABV for the US, the whisky is at least seemingly designed to be approachable first and foremost.
