The Macallan Rare Cask Batch 1
The Macallan Rare Cask is crafted to showcase complexity and depth, and is drawn from the broadest spectrum of casks used in maturation on The Macallan Estate. Hand-Picked by the whisky making team, the combination of sherry seasonsed American and European oak Casks – a high proportion of them first fill – create a remarkably rick and unique whisky.
The Macallan Rare Cask Batch No.1 2018 Release introduces a new look for Rare Cask, designed to give a greater insight into The Macallan whisky making process. This first batch is one of three batches to be released this year, with four planned for subsequent years. Each limited release batch represents the volume of only 50 oak sherry butts.
Nose: Soft notes of opulent vanilla and raisin pique the nose, giving way to a sweet ensemble of apple, lemon and orange.
Palate: Oak resonates, timeless, polished and rich. Vanilla and chocolate lead the finale along with a light citrus zest.
Finish: Full and warming.
