Three Venues, One Big Whisky Cel­e­bra­tion

The Peak (Hong Kong) - - Food & Drink • News -

The Ma­callan’s port­fo­lio of pre­mium whiskies grows with the re­cent re­lease of the 12 Years Old Dou­ble Cask. This sin­gle malt boasts two dis­tinct styles, re­flect­ing its mat­u­ra­tion in both Amer­i­can oak sherry casks and European oak sherry casks. The re­sult of dual cask mat­u­ra­tion is an ex­cep­tional flavour that’s aimed squarely at the whisky con­nois­seur. Upon first glance, the Dou­ble Cask has a light gold colour. On the nose, the whisky brings aro­mas of dried fruits, sherry and wood spice. On the palate, the whisky pro­vides vanilla and cit­rusy notes, slightly sweeter than its Sherry Oak sib­ling.

Whisky lovers en­joyed the 12 Years Old Dou­ble Cask at its launch event at Lily & Bloom, Lev­els and Bun­ga­low on Au­gust 24. Each venue wel­comed guests for an en­ter­tain­ing evening of live jazz and cock­tails. ABA and The Com­pany strut­ted their stuff at Lev­els, the Bigs­mall Quar­tet fea­tur­ing Blaine Whittaker played to an en­thu­si­as­tic re­cep­tion at Bun­ga­low, and Ted Lo and his band per­formed at Lily & Bloom. The un­veil­ing of The Ma­callan 12 Years Old Dou­ble Cask, which was served neat to guests in or­der to show­case its flavour pro­file and unique char­ac­ter­is­tics, fol­lowed the mu­sic. The cel­e­bra­tion car­ried on with plenty more whisky and sev­eral dance per­for­mances through the night.
