Firstly, I don’t pretend to be a connoisseur of single malts and normally opt for the more peaty Islay taste. For a change, we decided to try the Macallan 12 year old double cask on a friends recommendation. We really appreciated the smooth rounded taste of this malt and were instantly hooked. We have just placed our second order!
For me it's thin and a shadow of its former self. It used to pride itself in distinctive excellence now its big business. There are a multitude of other Single Malts doing more interesting expressions.
Bought the 50ml sampler. Very nice. Good nose, but some harshness at the back of the mouth. I may get some for Christmas. Very nice 'flavor'. I'm learning lots buying samplers.....
I have never been a fan of Macallan 12 scotch. I thoroughly enjoyed Macallan 18 Until the jump on price made it very difficult to continue enjoying. Then came mac 12 double cask. Delightful. I shade lighter than Mac 18 At a third of the price. Recently a magnum came on the market which was a pleasant surprise
This is interesting stuff from Macallan. The usual Macallan rancio sherry fruit is kind of in the background behind the spice from the oak. There is also a butterscotch/ toffee like creamyness that is mentioned in the producers’ tasting notes. This is not quite the sherry bomb that the Macallan 12yr sherry oak is. As far as I’m concerned that’s the real Macallan. I think it’s worlds better than the Macallan fine oak series which they wisely made to appeal to current trends. I’m a relatively young whisky drinker (41). However, when it comes to scotch I’m pretty old school. Sherry or peat (or some combination of the two). Personal preferences aside, this is pretty good stuff that is worth a try, especially for experienced whisky drinkers like me who think they’ve tried it all.
