Macallan Gold Double Cask
70cl / 40% abv
The Macallan Gold was first released in 2012, before being renamed Macallan Gold Double Cask in 2018 as part of the refreshed core range. Produced in first fill and refill sherry casks, using 9-15 year old spirit, the result is in a smooth and rich single malt.
Nose: big citrus notes coming through with sherbet lemons and orange peel which then turns into more of a floral sweetness with hints of oak.
Palate: the citrus raises its head again but this time accompanied by warming ginger and cinnamon.
Finish: sweeter on the finish with barley sugar and an oaky dryness.
