The Macallan Sherry Oak 30 Years Old forms part of our Sherry Oak range which features a series of single malt whiskies matured in hand-picked sherry seasoned oak casks from Jerez for richness and complexity. Deliciously smooth with a long, rich finish, the natural dark mahogany colour of the 30 Years Old is the richest in the range.
Sourced, crafted, toasted and seasoned under the watchful eye of The Macallan Master of Wood, the hand-picked casks are delivered to the demanding specifications of the Whisky Mastery Team.
When the tree is felled, the rich timber is sawn into staves and left to dry in the open air. The staves then journey to the south of Spain, for further air drying before being crafted into casks and toasted over an open fire in the cooperage of Jerez. Filled with dry Oloroso sherry, the casks are left to season for up to two years before being emptied and shipped to The Macallan Distillery, Speyside, Scotland.
Once filled with The Macallan’s ‘new make’ spirit , the casks lie undisturbed for over thirty years. It is the oak that gives this whisky all of its natural colour and makes the greatest contribution to the quality, distinctive aromas and flavours of this single malt of great richness and character.
