Macallan 12 year old Triple Cask, 40%

Price: $65 Issue: Spring 2019 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Triple Cask replaced Macallan's Fine Oak range in 2018, and was matured in a combination of European and American sherry-seasoned oak and American oak bourbon barrels. The entry level 12 year old offers a relatively light, zesty nose, with citrus fruit, vanilla, and ginger, while the palate yields more citrus fruit and vanilla, honey, sweet oak, and dark chocolate. Cantaloupe and wood spice in the finish.
