The Macallan was one of the first distillers in Scotland to be legally licensed. Since then we have built a reputation as one of the world’s leading single malt whiskies. The creation of The Macallan draws on the vital contributing influences of Spain, North America and Scotland – and of their respective natural raw materials, combined with traditional methods and craftsmanship.
The Macallan Rare Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been created as an ode to beautiful natural color and complexity of flavor that The Macallan is known for. This is the quintessential expression of The Macallan’s Sherry oak tradition. The Macallan Rare Cask is crafted using liquid aged in first-fill Sherry-seasoned oak casks. Bob Dalgarno, The Macallan’s Master Whisky Maker, hand-selects the finest whisky from less than one percent of the casks maturing at the distillery. The result of this scrupulous selection process is a brilliantly rich, vibrant ruby-red whisky that proudly exhibits two of The Macallan’s greatest pillars: exceptional oak casks and natural color, reinforcing our position as the peerless spirit.
NOSE: Deep notes of quiet vanilla, already in tune; bold and booming raisin.
PALATE: Spices lead loud and full, tempered by raisin; timeless, polished, rich and resonating oak takes control, as vanilla and chocolate complement each other in the background.
FINISH: Full and warming.
