The Macallan Rare Cask Batch No. 1 2018 Release

The Macallan Rare Casks series was first introduced in 2018. Rare Cask Batch No. 1 is a single malt drawn from a select group of fifty sherry-seasoned casks delivering a rich, full-flavored expression of the Macallan we all love.

Founded in 1824, The Macallan is one of the "Big 3" single malts in Scotland — the other two are Glenfiddich and Glenlivet. Fortunately, The Macallan has achieved this scale without sacrificing quality. A change in UK labeling laws aced them out of their "Speyside" designation. But just because the British Parliament gerrymandered the "official" boundaries doesn’t mean whiskey-lovers have to pay any attention. The Macallan single malts are famous for their classic Speyside style and the heavily sherried influence of their core rage.

The Macallan has been creating single malt whisky for so long at such a high volume and such a high level that they have what sports teams call a very "deep bench." Their incredible inventory of rare, aging single malt gives them the ability to pinpoint flavors and special editions for the refined whisky palate that satisfy a huge, global following. Their achievements are numerous, including setting the record price ever paid at auction for a single bottle of scotch at auction this year.

The Macallan issued three releases of their Rare Cask edition for 2018 (there will be four releases in 2019). Each small batch release is comprised of fifty hand-selected sherry butts containing The Macallan’s classic Speyside single malt of various ages. Uniquely, the casks used are a split between American and European oak, which increases the presence of vanilla and enhances reddish hues. It’s delivered at 43% ABV in The Macallan’s lovely sculpted decanter — itself worthy of your top shelf.
