What is the point of cask strength?
What Does ‘Cask Strength’ Mean? Rather than referring to any process the whisky has gone through, cask strength refers to what has not been done. Most whiskies are brought down to a standard percentage of alcohol by volume, or proof, by adding water to the spirit before bottling so that each batch is consistent.
Is Macallan 12 actually 12 years old?
Released as part of Macallan’s ever-wonderful Sherry Oak range comes this 12 Year Old. It has spent its entire maturation in sherry-seasoned oak casks from Jerez, and is bottled at 40% ABV after its 12 years of ageing.
Is Macallan 12 or 15 better?
The 15 Year is sweeter and oakier than its 12 Year-Old sibling due the additional 3 years spent in those casks seasoned with delicious Spanish sherry wine. This is an excellent single malt, smooth and mellow.
Is Macallan or Johnnie Walker better?
The huge price gap makes me prefer Johnnie Walker Green Label over the Macallan 15. Even at the same price I prefer the Green Label over the Macallan as the later is sweeter due to the aging in Sherry casks. Both whiskies make fantastic sips that can be enjoyed neat or rocks. These whiskies don’t make good mixers.
