Macallan Sherry Oak Single Malt Scotch Whisky 25 year old
|Single Malt Scotch
|United Kingdom, Scotland, Highland
For much of the 20th century, Macallan was primarily a constituent malt in blends. It was not until the 1980s downturn in the market that the distillery decided to focus on its single malt brand. Fortuitously, this coincided with the crest of a wave of enthusiasm for the high-quality releases that the distillery had licensed to Campbell, Hope & King, and Gordon & MacPhail in the 1960s and 1970s. These remain some of the most collectible on the market. Macallan is easily the most sought-after.
Rich mahogany color. Aromas of citrus, balanced with cinnamon, sherry, and wood smoke. Full and rich palate, with dried fruits and a hint of wood smoke. The finish is long, with dried fruit, wood smoke, and spice.
