Macallan Classic Cut 2020 70cl 55°
The Macallan classic cut is the fourth edition of the limited annual Classic Cut series. Each edition is different from the last, the 2020 edition reveals flavours of thyme.
This Single Malt has aged in European oak barrels with Sherry and ex-Bourbon barrels in American oak. It was bottled at 55°, we find the typical characteristics of the distillery with a touch of modernity thanks to the aromas of citrus and vanilla.
The use of the ex-Bourbon cask brings a nice twist to this classic.

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.
