The Macallan 15 Year Old Cask Sample (Douglas Laing)

Macallan 15 year Old sample This Macallan 15 year old cask sample was tasted back in April 2014 on a visit to Douglas Laing HQ in Glasgow.

Likely to become one of the Old particular or Directors Cut range this is a cracker of a Macallan and shows just how good this distillery can be.

Thanks again to Douglas Laing for having us over at their HQ and to Jan (@whiskyjan) for taking us through the whiskies.


This is really fresh, bourbon notes of slight char and lots of madagscan vanilla mix with fresh galiea melon and mango

theres initially a hit of spice before lots of fresh fruit salad (melon, mango and papaya) come through

Spicy but theres a lovely freshness almost menthol there too
