Conclusie

Crafted from a combination of European sherry seasoned oak casks, American sherry seasoned oak casks and American ex-bourbon oak casks, our Triple Cask Matured 18 Years Old showcases and exemplifies the vibrant union of three spirits. Characterised by the smooth, delicate and complex character of the entire range, eighteen years of maturation gives this expression the greatest depth of flavour with richness of orange, velvety cocoa and wood spice a natural light amber colour.

Triple Cask Matured 18 Years Old was previously known as Fine Oak 18 Years Old and offers the same extraordinarily smooth, delicate yet complex character with a new name, new bottle and bold new packaging. Reflecting the quality of our whiskies and unveiling the skills and craft of the Macallan Masters, this new identity for our core range will roll out from the end of April across the world.

Notitie

The Macallan Triple Cask Matured 18 Years Old forms part of our Triple Cask Matured range; a series of single malt whiskies crafted in a triple cask combination of European and American sherry seasoned oak casks and American ex-bourbon oak casks. Exquisitely and expertly married together, this trinity of spirits produces an exotic single malt with orange, velvety cocoa and wood spice flavors.

Every Macallan single malt reveals the unrivalled commitment to the mastery of wood and spirit for which The Macallan has been known since it was established in 1824. It is an expression of our enduring desire to go beyond ordinary, to seek out the extraordinary, and create peerless single malts.

With an unflinching commitment to put sherry casks at the heart of The Macallan single malt, our reputation for the extraordinary is testament to the exceptional oak casks in which we mature our spirit. Sourced, crafted, toasted and seasoned under the watchful eye of The Macallan Master of Wood, these hand-picked casks are delivered to the demanding specifications of The Macallan Master Distiller and his team.

Once filled, the maturing spirit remains undisturbed in the same casks for the necessary number of years it needs to be worthy of its destined Macallan expression. It is these oak casks that make the greatest contribution to the quality, natural color and distinctive aromas and flavors which lie at the heart of The Macallan single malt.
