The Macallan Year of the Ox is a new limited-edition gift set featuring the Double Cask 12 Years Old to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Now in its fourth year, the Year of the Ox package joins the annual series to commemorate the zodiac on the Chinese calendar.
This uniquely designed Limited Edition gift box takes inspiration from traditional Chinese fabrics, depicting the landscape and natural environment. The pattern on the box reinterprets this theme to celebrate the Macallan Estate, including the River Spey, the barley fields and the distillery.
Nose:Classic dried fruit territory, if less intense than the Sherry Oak expression. Aromatic butterscotch, too.
Palate:Creamy and honeyed with some thick-cut marmalade, cinnamon and warm pastries.
