My sister, The Prep Gal and I had an amazing opportunity to meet with Marc Laverdiere, an Ambassador of The Macallan, for the unveiling of the Whisky brand’s latest masterpiece, The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old. The Macallan Double Cask will be a permanent addition to their exceptional premium whiskies. The new single malt is a marriage of American Oak and European Oak casks, which makes a beautiful marriage, perfect for all occasions.
During the event, Mr. Laverdiere (as photographed with myself and Sara above) showed us through a comparative sampling of the different Macallan Whiskies. We learned a lot about how the different whiskies from The Macallan; Gold, Amber, Sienna and Double Cask could pair with different times of day, and different foods.
We learned that The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old was the perfect Whisky for all occasions, and pairings – as the combination of European Oak and American Oak create the perfect balance of flavours. The delicate flavours of American Oak – vanilla, citrus and light oak are the fore front, where flavours credited to European Oak – rich fruits, sherry, and wood spice, offer a complimentary backdrop.
The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old is the perfect whisky for explorers to discover, and also The Macallan fans to enjoy and add to their arsenal.
