Rare Cask (Batch #2) has been crafted from only handpicked Spanish 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 Macallan.
Macallan Rare Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky showcases two of Macallan's most fundamental pillars: natural color and sherry oak casks, according to Macallan Whisky Maker Robert Dalgarno. Dalgarno hand selected fewer than one percent of the casks maturing on the Macallan estate in order to craft this rare whisky.
