Macallan Rare Cask Whisky

The Macallan Rare Cask is the latest addition to the 1824 series, created by Master Whisky Maker Bob Dalgarno. Macallan makes only one spirit, and that same spirit is aged in a variety of casks made of American and Spanish oak that have previously aged American whiskies and Spanish sherry. The latter is The Macallan's claim to whisky fame—they have more Spanish sherry casks—the whisky world's most coveted—than any other maker. Each cask variety brings its own flavor, colour and character to the whisky, and that's what allows Dalgarno to create the range of products now available.

About the Brand

Founded in 1824, The Macallan was one of the first distilleries in Scotland to be legally licensed. Since then, The Macallan has built a reputation as one of the world's truly great single malt whiskies. To fully appreciate The Macallan, we must understand the contributing influences of Scotland, Spain and North America, and of their respective natural raw materials, together with the methods and the craftsmanship, perfected over the generations, that combine to give such outstanding quality and distinctive character.

Tasting Notes

Defined by the liquid's rich red color, the sherry oak casks (many are first fill, meaning that it is the first time that scotch has been placed in them to age) that house it are selected for the rich and tasty hue they bring to it. It is indeed rare, only a limited number of bottles will make their way to retailers, but it is expected to be an ongoing addition to the line and not a limited release. Each cask that goes in to every expression is hand selected by Dalgarno. Rare Cask is a naturally vibrant liquid that noses of raisin and dried fruit, sherry spice and rich vanilla.
