Macallan 12 Whisky: A Classic Single Malt
1 1

1 post in this topic

The Macallan 12 Whisky is a classic single malt that’s perfect for enjoying on its own or with a little ice.

The Macallan 12 Whisky

Macallan 12 Whisky is a single malt Scotch whisky that was first released in 1989. It’s aged for 12 years and bottled at 43% ABV. The whisky is aged in sherry casks, which contributes to its complex taste profile.

Macallan 12 Whisky has won several awards over its 30-year history, including the highest rating from Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible (97 points). In addition to being one of the most popular single malts on our list, this award-winning dram also happens to be one of our favorites!

Nosing and tasting

Now that you’ve got your glass of Macallan 12 in front of you, it’s time to take a look at what this whisky has to offer. First, it’s important to note that this is a single malt; unlike blends (which contain multiple types of whisky), single malts are made from just one type of grain.

The nose (the scent) and taste (what comes out when we swallow) are two separate but equally important aspects of experiencing whisky. Both are essential for understanding how our senses work together to create an experience–and with any luck, they’ll be working together well with this particular blend!
