The Macallan 40 Year Old Sherry Cask 2017 Release … Exclusively matured in hand-picked Oloroso sherry seasoned oak casks from Spain, this highly limited release is a testament to The Macallan’s exceptional oak casks; transforming the rich, fruity and full-bodied ‘new make’ spirit into a single malt of great richness and character.
Once distilled, the precious spirit was laid down to mature for a minimum of 40 years in exceptional oak casks. It is these casks that are the single greatest contributor to the outstanding quality, natural colour and distinctive aromas and flavours which lie at the heart of this rare Macallan single malt whisky.
Crafted from an intriguing combination of three sherry-seasoned casks – a European oak sherry butt, a European oak sherry hogshead and an American oak sherry butt – The Macallan 40 years old is a rich and complex whisky, displaying a natural deep copper colour.
The Macallan 40 Years Old 2017 Release was made available from December 2017 onwards, spanning the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa and will also be available in exclusive airport retail stores worldwide and at The Macallan Distillery.
