Macallan 12 Year Old
SM20-192*

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. Described by Paul Pacult, the renowned international whisky writer, in his book Kindred Spirits as: "simply the best 12 Year Old single malt around", The Macallan has justly reaped such critical acclaim. The secret of The Macallan lies in defiant adherence to traditional methods and ingredients. The continued use of finest Golden Promise barley and the insistence on the finest oak casks are just two of the pre-requisites for perfection.

Macallan

The Macallan Distillery is probably one of the most famous brands in the whisky industry today. The distillery is three miles from Craigellachie which is the heart of the Speyside region. Even though Macallan is located in the heart of Speyside they have labeled it a Highland malt. The distillery was founded in 1824 and was named the ‘Elchies Distillery’. Macallan has 8 wash stills and 18 spirit stills and produces around 8,000,000 litres a year. In 2001 Macallan opened up a new visitor center. The tour that Macallan provides is very in depth and is great if you are just starting out and learning all about whisky. It shows all the processes and the maturation all the way down to microscopic slides so you can understand what happens. It is worth visiting.


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.
