Product Notes:
90-95 points Wine Enthusiast The initial aroma is sweetish, winey and oaky; aeration allows the aroma to expand to include marzipan, treacle, molasses, honey, vanilla bean, cinnamon and cocoa butter. The palate entry is sweet, creamy and assertive; at midpalate the flavor becomes intensely nutty, buttery and bacon fat-like, with the beginnings of rancio. Remains one of Speyside's standard-bearer 12 year olds. (4/ 2008)

Macallan (12 yr., 43%) 93 A seamless whisky of great integrity! Full amber color. A rich, fragrant aroma fills the nose with honeyed sherry, smoke, and light fruit. Its flavor delivers what the aroma promised, with a very full, voluptuous, balance of sherry, caramel malt, delicate fruit and smoke. A beautiful, full-bodied, sherried Speyside. (Best Buy)

The Macallan was one of the first Highland distilleries to take out a licence in 1824, since when it has been distilled by generations of craftsman on a small estate over looking the River near Craigellachie.

The key to understanding The Macallan lies in the Company's total dedication to quality and attention to detail. A purposefully tradtionalist distillery, no shor cuts are taken in time, investment and production of "the best glass" (Kingles Amis). Alongside its unusally small handbeaten copper stills, The Macallan is perhaps best known for its insistence on sherry aging.

The Macallan malt whisky is matured excluvisely in sherry oak casks from the bodegas of Jerez, Spain. The Spanish oak casks are hand-picked annually then seasoned for three years with the finest Oloroso and fino sherries. Shipped unbroken to Speyside they are filled with ne Macallan spirit and "sleep" for a mandatory 10 years while the cask inparts The Macallan's distinctive mellow flavor and rich golden color. Cloves.
Palate: Rich in both dried fruit and sherry, with a subtle toffee sweetness and pleasant touch of spice flavour with a touch of sherry sweetness and wood.
Finish: Medium long.

About Estate:
The Macallan is a single malt Scotch whisky, produced at Macallan Distillery near Easter Elchies House, at Craigellachie in the Speyside region. Originally, The Macallan was only matured in oak sherry casks brought to the distillery from Jerez, Spain. Beginning in 2004 Macallan introduced a new main product, the Fine Oak series, with the whisky mellowed in bourbon oak casks as well as sherry ones

Food Pairing:
Single malt Scotch: a delight usually refrained from until after dinner. Most popular pairing: the cigar

About Varietal:
Single malt whisky is a whisky which is distilled at a single distillery, and which is made completely from a single type of malted grain, traditionally barley, (although there are also single malt rye whiskies). Most single malt whiskies are distilled using a pot still. Single malts are produced all over the world, but the best known single malts come from Scotland, Ireland and Japan.
