Macallan Gold was first introduced in 2012 as part of the distillery's 1824 range of non-age statement expressions, before being renamed Macallan Gold Double Cask in 2018 as part of the new core range. Matured in a combination of first fill and refill American oak and European oak sherry casks to create an incredibly smooth and rich single malt. Soft gold in colour, this is the lightest expression of the Macallan range, but still packed with typical Speyside Macallan flavours.
A lemon citrus nose, with zesty orange peel and oaky vanilla notes. The palate reveals a light sweet flavour, more citrus, apples and ginger spices, but in no way overpowering. Overall a slightly sweet and malty whisky, easy going and fresh.
