The Macallan 12 Year Old Triple Cask 700ml 40%
700ml: 40% vol.
Age: 12 Years

Release date: 2019
This 12-year-old release from the Macallan forms part of their elegant Triple Cask range which replaced the Fine Oak expressions in mid-2018.
This time round, the Macallan have used a trinity of spirits, matured individually in sherry seasoned European oak, sherry seasoned American oak and ex-bourbon American oak casks, all expertly married together to create a single malt that delivers an extraordinarily smooth and delicate character, full of citrus fruits, vanilla and fresh oak.
