Editors notes

Sherry seasoned American and European oak casks creates the distinctive, warm character of this harmonious single malt. Macallan's skilled whisky making team optimise the right mix of European and American sherry seasoned oak casks to allow the delicate and indulgent flavours of American oak to take centre stage while the more traditional Macallan characteristics of rich fruits, sherry and wood spice provide a reassuringly familiar backdrop.

Creamy butterscotch with a hint of toffee apple, candied orange, vanilla custard and newly felled oak. Deliciously honeyed, wood spices and citrus, balanced with raisins and caramel. Oak lingers, warm, sweet and drying.

Scotland

Scotland is widely recognized as a leader in the global whisky industry, producing some of the world's most sought-after and beloved whiskies. The country's unique terroir, which includes everything from the quality of the water to the local peat and barley, plays a crucial role in creating the distinctive flavor profiles that define Scottish whiskies.

The whisky industry has been a vital part of Scotland's economy for centuries and continues to thrive today, with exports of Scotch whisky valued at billions of pounds annually. Scottish whiskies come in a range of styles, from the smoky and peaty Islay malts to the lighter and fruitier whiskies produced in the Speyside region.

Many Scottish distilleries offer tours and tastings, providing visitors with a behind-the-scenes look at the whisky-making process and a chance to sample some of the country's finest whiskies. Some of the most iconic distilleries include Lagavulin, Talisker, Glenlivet, and Macallan.

Beyond its economic impact, Scottish whisky is also a cultural institution, steeped in tradition and history. From the distilling techniques passed down through generations of whisky-makers to the stories and legends that surround the industry, whisky is a deeply ingrained part of Scottish identity.

Scotland's whisky industry has a rich heritage and reputation that is known worldwide. From the unique terroir that shapes its flavor to the iconic distilleries that produce it, Scottish whisky is a true cultural treasure.

Scottish Highlands

A historic region in Scotland (and also home to the famed Loch Ness and its fabled monster), the Highlands has a whisky-producing heritage that dates back centuries. These days, the region – in the north of Scotland – is the largest of its five whisky-producing region, at a size of roughly 26,000 square kilometres. The area spans from Orkney to Arran and encompasses the northern isles as well as the bulk of the Inner and Outer Hebrides, Argyll, Stirlingshire, and parts of Perthshire and Aberdeenshire. With 47 distilleries throughout the region, it’s no wonder the Highlands makes a diverse range of whiskies. Whether you like lighter textured whiskies, sweet and full-bodied single malts, peaty options, or spicy varieties, there’s a wee dram to suit everyone!
