About The Macallan 30 Year Old Sherry Oak Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2018

This highly anticipated 30-year-old release is an expression from The Macallan’s Sherry Oak range — a series of single malt whiskies, matured in hand-picked Oloroso sherry-seasoned oak casks from Jerez. Thirty years of maturation resulted in rich and heady aromas of orange clove, nutmeg and wood smoke as well as an intense and indulgent palate with flavors of macadamia nut, vanilla, and a hint of sandalwood and black cherry. Deliciously smooth with a long, rich finish, the natural dark mahogany color of the 30 Years Old is the richest in the range.

Situated on a ridge above the banks of the River Spey, the Easter Elchies House has been the spiritual home of The Macallan for over three centuries. In 1820, Alexander Reid began renting the home from Sir Lewis Grant of Grant. Reid was a farmer, and soon after he sowed the fields surrounding the home with barley, Reid established the first licensed distillery on the estate, which he named Macallan after an ancient church that had been destroyed by fire during the 15th century.

Today, The Macallan Estate encompasses 370 acres, 95 of which are devoted to the production of The Macallan Estate's Minstrel barley (a single acre produces about 2.5 tons of barley each year, enough to yield 1,800 bottles of The Macallan). In addition, the distillery contracts with farmers to purchase barley that is low in nitrogen and high in starch, resulting in a rich and oily whisky.

After the barley is harvested in late August and early September, it is malted before being mashed in one of The Macallan's two mash tuns, a process that takes between four and eight hours. Then, the barley is fermented with a specially cultured yeast before being distilled twice through The Macallan's copper-pot stills. The copper comprising the stills acts as a catalyst, and enhances the formation of sweet esters while minimizing impurities such as sulphur. In addition, the curiously small stills — some of ""the smallest stills within the Scotch whisky industry,"" according to production manager Alexander Tweedie — produce a whisky with a heavy, oily flavor.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)


Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
