For the first time in the series, which is designed to offer a different flavour experience year on year, The Macallan Whisky Mastery Team had the freedom the explore The Macallan’s different cask types to create the peerless single malt. The Macallan Whisky Maker, Polly Logan used her skill and experience to craft the expression using a combination of sherry seasoned European oak casks and ex-bourbon American oak casks to create a single malt with a unique flavour and character.
A single malt matured in an exquisite union of oak casks, this single malt was carefully crafted by the Whisky Mastery Team to showcase the role of ex-bourbon American oak casks in our portfolio. The expression perfectly combines sweet lightness brought by these casks with depth and complexity from The Macallan’s renowned sherry seasoned American oak casks, to uncover a new, uniquely heightened flavour experience.
