The Macallan Sherry Oak 40 Years Old
DRIED FRUIT, GINGER, WOOD SPICE, CITRUS, CINNAMON
Exclusively matured in hand-picked Oloroso sherry seasoned oak casks from Jerez, Spain, this highly limited release is 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 40 years in our 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 casks – a European oak sherry butt, a European oak sherry hogshead and an American oak sherry butt – The Macallan Sherry Oak 40 years old is a rich and complex whisky, displaying a natural deep copper colour.
