Here is the newest addition to Macallan’s 1824 Masters Series, crafted from casks hand-selected by Macallan’s whisky maker. The Macallan Rare Cask is exquisite whisky, with a splendidly rich and resonant ruby hue, crafted only from handpicked, Spanish oak sherry seasoned casks – amongst the most precious and scarce in single malt whisky. Rare Cask’s rich ruby-red whisky celebrates three of The Macallan’s greatest prides: exceptional sherry-seasoned oak casks, rich flavor and beautiful natural color. Its impressive journey from acorn to bottle begins in the ancient oak forests of northern Spain.
From this tannin-rich Spanish oak, the staves are hand-fashioned in the province of Cadiz and the casks are hand-crafted and toasted by the Tevasa cooperage in Jerez. The Macallan’s casks are seasoned with dry oloroso sherry for eighteen months, before being emptied and shipped whole to Scotland to be filled with fresh whisky.
With a suggested retail price of $300 for a 750 ML bottle, Rare Cask is available now at your local fine spirits purveyor. For more information, visit The Macallan.
