Built in 1700 The Macallan estate lies in an area of great natural beauty. Macallan uses smallest spirit stills on Speyside, which Contribute to the distinctively rich, fruity 'new make' spirit of the distillery. Interestingly, these stills are so famous they have appeared on the back of a Bank of Scotland banknotes. The Macallan spends more time on sourcing, building and caring for its casks than any other distillery. Spanish sherry seasoned oak casks produce flavours of chocolate, dried fruits and spices; American sherry seasoned oak casks provide sweet citrus, light spice, vanilla and light oak, whilst the American bourbon seasoned oak barrels offer sweet citrus, coconut and oak. The Macallan 1824 Series Rare Cask Single Malt Scotch is handpicked by the Whiskey Maker and represents fewer than 1% of the casks in the distillery due to the strict selection process. It is a truly splendid rare dram, with a rich hue, woody, fruit and sweet flavors with a smooth chocolate finish.

About the brand
Founded in 1824, The Macallan was one of the famous group of the first legally licensed distilleries in Scotland. Since then, The Macallan has built a reputation as one of the world's truly great single malt whiskies. Most likely derived from two Gaelic words: ‘Magh’ meaning a fertile piece of ground and ‘Ellan’, meaning ‘of St Fillan’, an Irish born monk who travelled widely in Scotland spreading Christianity during the eighth century, the Macallan distillery was founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid. A barley farmer and school teacher, Reid was amongst those farmers who had been making whisky on their farms in the area for centuries, distilling their surplus crops during the winter months. He was well practiced by the time his distillery became legal – and it showed. From the outset, The Macallan was recognised for its quality of product above all else and rose to fame quickly due to its consistently rich and smooth liquor. An interesting quirk of the Macallan Distillery that remains to this day is its fourteen strangely small spirit stills – each made from copper and holding an initial ‘charge’ of 3,000 liters. The stills’ unique size and shape are said to give the spirit maximum contact with the copper, and in turn helping to concentrate the ‘new make’ spirit and provide the rich, fruity, full-bodied flavours so characteristic of The Macallan. Only around 15% of the spirit, collected from the spirit stills is filled into casks for maturing into The Macallan. The reason? Because this portion is the best of the best, or, ‘the heart of the run’. This minute ‘cut’, is one of the smallest in the industry and is a prime reason for the full-bodied richness of The Macallan ‘new make’ spirit. The Macallan’s oak casks are considered by the distillery to be the single greatest contributors to the outstanding quality, distinctive aromas and flavours of The Macallan. The distillery management spend more per cask than any other distillery in sourcing, crafting, seasoning and caring for its casks to create aromas and flavours derived from its Spanish oak sherry casks and American oak bourbon barrels. The attention to detail and quality has proven to be the key of The Macallan’s success. Owners, the Edrington Group reported that prior-year sales of The Macallan were up 8% to over 700,000 cases and that an office was being opened in New York to continue growth in the American market. Aside from its consumer growth The Macallan also has an impressive haul of awards. With its 25 Year Old recently winning Single Malt of The Year (Single Cask) in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2017 and the brand also gaining accolades from The World Whisky Awards and the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, The Macallan appears to be going from strength to strength.

Wave after flood of greatness with a completion that keeps going forever. Sufficiently thick to bite on even at 86 proof. How fortunate are the individuals at the refinery that get the opportunity to taste this one at barrel quality?!?
