In celebration of Chinese New Year 2021, Macallan has released a limited-edition version of its 12-year-old Double Cask whisky. The Lunar New Year Edition packaging is adorned with the decorative knots that represent longevity in Asian culture. The sherry-seasoned whisky itself is matured in a combination of American and European oak for a minimum of 12 years.
Creamy butterscotch and toffee apple on the nose, with vanilla, candied orange and new oak notes. The palate brings honeyed wood spices alongside citrus, raisins and caramel. The finish is warm and sweet with aspects of oak lingering on.
