It is the oldest expression ever released of the world’s best-selling single malt.
A result of global influences: American style, distinct European flair, and a clever Canadian twist.
Only after cracking a bottle of The Macallan did a family discover its incredible value.
Here are some worthies to consider, for New Year’s Eve, or for any time at all.
The Macallan has been working with Tevasa Cooperage—the only company in Spain that transforms tree to finished, seasoned, cask entirely in-house—for almost 30 years now.
Seven barrels at roughly 300 bottles per barrel means something short of 2,200 bottles for the world. The $5,000 price tag might seem, actually, fair, in this context.
A tour through the Macallan distilleries in northern Scotland gives new resonance to the name Craigellachie.
It takes dedication, resolve, talent, and guts to actually insist that an iconic single malt change its stripes. The age statement has disappeared on the Macallan 12, 15, and 18 Year Old whiskies, for both the sherry cask and the fine oak ranges. So, the 1824 Series is born.
