About The Macallan Classic Cut 2022 Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky

From founder Alexander Reid to the present Macallan Whisky Mastery team—Macallan is one classic spirit maker we certainly can’t ignore. Founded in 1824 on a peaceful Speyside Estate, the distillery was one of the first to get properly licensed. From wood quality, taste, flavor, and even paperwork, this long-standing Whisky producer has got booze-making down to a T. The Macallan Classic Cut 2022 Edition showcases an unmatched tasting experience. This exquisite spirit spent its fair share of maturation in a compelling combination of barrels with two significant wood types taken from American and European oak. Clocking in at 43 % ABV, this sophisticated Scotch displays a vast complexity of flavors, including signature rich dried fruits, ginger spice, and wood smoke notes.

About The Macallan

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 sowed the fields surrounding the rented home with barley and 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. In the slow winter days, Reid would ferment and distill his excess grains into whisky, which was often drunk straight from the still or sold to travelers passing through the town.

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 harvest, the barley is malted and 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 sulfur. 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. Following distillation, The Macallan distillers remove the heads and tails of the whisky and collect approximately 16% of the spirit to fill into casks for maturation. This "cut," which is among the highest of any Scottish distillery, results in a more full-bodied and richer whisky.

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.

The nose is aromatic, flourishing with a fresh blend of grapefruit, peach, apple, and orange alongside light spices, vanilla essence, and almonds. The lively mouthfeel is fruit-forward, filled with chocolate hints, lemon drizzle cake, nuts, and oak. It finishes with a sweet, creamy twang, rounded off with warming spice.
