Macallan Rare Cask 2022 Release 70cl 43°
Macallan unveils its Rare Cask 2022 edition. Aged from fine and rare oak barrels, previously worked with Sherry, this Single Malt perfectly sums up all the know-how, passion and creativity of Macallan to produce extraordinary whiskies.
Each cask has been selected for its distinctive and complex flavour profile by the distillery's cellar master and assembled to exacting specifications to create this Rare Cask.
This luxurious expression brings out the magic and science in the complex process of making The Macallan whisky.
Sweet aromas of vanilla with rich notes of raisins develop the olfactory journey of this whisky, followed by a mild development of fresh apple, lemon and orange. Intense flavours of raisins dominate the palate, before giving way to vanilla and dark chocolate, with light citrus zest. The finish is long, rich and velvety to provide a whisky experience that will leave a lasting impression.
The Macallan distillery is nestled on the banks of the river Spey, at the heart of Glenlivet, cradle of the great malts.
Located near Graigellachie, the Macallan distillery obtained its first license to distil thanks to Alexander Reid. It was purchased by James Stewart in 1886 (from Glen Spey distillery) who undertook its reconstruction. In 1892, Roderick Kemp took over the ownership of the old farm distillery. It stayed in the Kemp’s family until 1996. Within 10 years (1965 to 1975), the number of stills at Macallan rose from 6 to 21.
The success, brand and popularity of The Macallan are established on the exceptional quality of production, as Macallan maintained traditional methods of whisky elaboration.
All of The Macallan production comes from the same distillery, which makes it a Single Malt. The Macallan is today the fifth best-selling malt in the world. The six golden rules of The Macallan are the reason why it is today the Rolls of Single Malts, according to the widely recognized Harrod’s Guide.
