Macallan 12 Years Double Cask

The Double Cask fully matured in Sherry Casks. Exclusively for Macallan, American oak casks were filled with Sherry and were used for the maturing of the Whisky. Additionally to the American oak casks, also classic Sherry casks made out of European oak were used. For a long time, Double Cask was only available in Asia. Today, this Whisky is part of the regular assortment of Macallan, but in scarce quantities.
