Macallan Single Malt Scotch Whiskey – 18 Yr Double Cask
$500 value. Donated by Blake Souers from SUNZ Insurance.
This 18-year-old expression from The Macallan distillery is part of the Double Cask range, which uses both European and American oak casks, seasoned with dry Oloroso sherry. The Whisky Mastery Team selects a balance of spirit from both types of cask to create a whisky with a sweet, warm character. Bottled at 43% abv, this expression has an amber honey color which comes solely from the casks with no artificial coloring added.
Nose: Dried fruit, ginger, and toffee. Rich orange with hints of clove and nutmeg.
Palate: Rich raisin and sultana with notes of caramel, vanilla and ginger, balanced by wood spice and zesty citrus.
Finish: Warm oak spice with ginger, turning to sweet orange.
