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.


Nose: Rich. Fruit cake, marzipan and lots of beeswax notes, a highly polished floor of a stately pile. The sweetness is akin to dried apricot and sultana; brazil nut, heather, dark chocolate and resin. Palate: Clean with light tannin. More citric elements here than on the nose. Black banana, dried fruit, licorice. I prefer its boldness when neat, but water takes it back to the almond area and reveals slightly more oiliness. Finish: Gentle. Walnut whip. Great balance. Comment: A classic Macallan.
