This month, the world pays tribute to the life and cultural legacy of Robert Burns, a Scottish poet, lyricist, and a major part of the Scottish identity. On 25 January, Scotland and fans of the poet come together to celebrate Burns Night and commemorate his legacy with a grand dinner and great whisky. The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old is the perfect expression to celebrate the occasion.
Whether you’re a loyal Burns fan or new to the world of whisky, raise a dram of The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old, a fully rounded Scottish single malt with flavors of honey, citrus, and ginger. The perfect alliance of Oloroso sherry seasoned American and European oak casks creates the distinctive, warm character of this harmonious single malt. The Macallan’s whisky-making team optimizes the right mix of European and American sherry seasoned oak casks to allow the delicate flavors of American oak to take center stage while the more traditional Macallan characteristics of rich fruits, sherry, and wood spice provide a reassuringly familiar backdrop.
Nuts, olives, dips, grilled steak, cheese compliment the complexities of the whisky’s flavor profiles. As The Macallan has a fruity and spicy-sweet nose to it, there are multiple desserts and sweets options that you can enjoy with your drink.
If you’re not a fan of a neat whisky pour, then The Macallan Great Scott is the perfect solution and best of all, it’s easy to make.
