The Macallan Rare Cask Tasting – Saturday, NOV 19th

Saint Regis Club Newson September 4th, 2015No Comments

RARE CASK has been crafted from only handpicked sherry seasoned oak casks, some of the most precious and scarce in Single Malt Whisky, with an exceptionally high proportion of them being first fill. The Macallan’s wood policy is unrivalled and it is this commitment to sourcing the industry’s finest, most expensive and exclusive casks that has given rise to RARE CASK, an exquisite whisky with a splendidly rich and resonant hue.

Each cask responsible for creating this naturally vibrant whisky has been hand selected by The Macallan’s Master Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno. Using his in-depth knowledge of the thousands of casks we have maturing at our distillery, he has taken time to distinguish the chosen few that can deliver this intensity of character; these chosen few represent less than 1% of the casks maturing at The Macallan. Coupled with The Macallan’s commitment to natural colour we have created a tantalising single malt which sees Spanish oak pique the nose before admitting rich dried fruits and an edgy trickle of treacle.
