Scotch Whisky brand Macallan has launched the latest addition to its iconic Double Cask range with Double Cask 30 Years Old.
A charming combination of cinder toffee, honeycomb, vanilla and red apples, the expression exhibits a rich depth of flavour and a complex character.
As the name suggests, the 3oyear is a blend of the best balance of spirit from both the American and European oak casks. The sherry seasoned American oak imparts delicate, sweet flavours, while the European oak delivers the subtle and classic style of The Macallan.
“The Macallan Double Cask 30 Years Old is a modern take on our classic 30-year-old and is an exceptional aged single malt,” said Kirsteen Campbell, Master Whisky Maker, The Macallan.
“With a rich combination and depth of flavour and a complex character, it is a whisky to be savoured, exhibiting notes of cinder toffee, fresh honeycomb, rich vanilla and red apples. The Macallan Double Cask brings together sherry seasoned American and European oak casks to create the perfect balance of flavours. It is the oak that gives the whisky its natural colour and is the single greatest contributor to the quality, distinctive aromas and flavours.”
The Macallan has collaborated with American artist and photographer, Erik Madigan Heck to showcase the signature tastes and unique and distinctive flavour profile of Double Cask 30 Years Old. Taking his inspiration from the natural landscape on The Macallan Estate and the complex flavours and natural colour of the whisky, he captured imagery evoking the single malt’s character in a unique and contemporary way.
