Macallan 12 yo Jerez Sherry Oak




The Macallan 12 year old gets a stylish new makeover while continuing a tradition of being matured exclusively in Oloroso sherry seasoned casks from Jerez. While the exact breakdown remains undisclosed, we do know that the majority were first-fill casks which means even more colour and flavours are picked up – and it shows on the nose; Twelve years is relatively young for a slow-ager like Macallan, but already there’s nice aromatic intensity and definition with a medley of dried fruits (dates, prunes, fig) alongside drier, leafy, nutty characteristics as well as fresh oak shavings and pepper prickle. Likewise on the palate which repeats the aromas adding nuances of sulphur, orange spice cake, bitter chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla. The finish drops in vibrancy and momentum leaving mostly residual vanillas, the spice and sherry notes in retreat. Tastes like some American oak is at play, nevertheless, this retains many essential qualities of traditional Macallan. 40% Alc./Vol.
