Description

Macallan Cask Strength Matured in selected Sherry oak casks from Spain and bottled at original cask strength, without the addition of water. An exceptionally rich Single Malt, best enjoyed with a splash of water. To release the complex aromas and sumptuous flavors (Intense, Sherry, Oak, Long). Macallan Cask Strength is one of Scotland’s most famous distilleries, and produces one of the world’s biggest-selling single malt whiskies.

Situated on the banks of the Spey river in the heart of Speyside, the distillery is based at Easter Elchies estate, which covers 158 hectares (390 acres) of farmland. The estate includes 37 ha (90 acres) planted to barley, which is used in the production of the whisky. A new distillery building with a visitor center was opened on the property in June 2018. There are now 12 wash stills, plus 24 spirit stills. Production is set to increase by one third.

The Macallan cask strength is available with The Whiskey Rooms though The Edrington Group decided to withdraw it in 2012. It was replaced with Cask Strength 10 Year Old, which was likewise discontinued after a few years.

The quality necessary for this superb dram-The Macallan Cask Strength Red Label has been detected in less than 1% of barrels. The nose has a rich vanilla and raisin perfume, followed by apple and citrus; the tongue has a spicy blend of ginger, cinnamon, vanilla, and chocolate, followed by a faint citrus zest finish. Enjoy by itself.
