The Rare Cask’s rich mahogany-red whisky showcases two of The Macallan’s greatest and most defining strengths – sherry seasoned oak casks and natural colour. For this spectacular whisky, 16 different cask styles were individually hand chosen for their character, some casks so rare they will never be used again. This spicy quartet is unwavering in flavour. Oak resonates, timeless, polished and rich. Vanilla and chocolate lead the finale along with a light citrus zest. Ending perfectly warming and woody.
The Macallan Rare Cask 2022 release is crafted from the finest and rarest sherry seasoned oak casks, unearthed by The Macallan Whisky Mastery Team using their knowledge, skill, passion, and creativity in their quest to seek out the extraordinary.
This single malt whisky reveals the remarkable art and science of the Whisky Maker in selecting unique oak casks that exhibit a distinctive and complex flavour profile. They were curated for maturation by The Macallan Master of Wood and delivered to the exacting specifications of The Macallan Whisky Mastery Team to create Rare Cask. This luxurious expression highlights the magic and science in The Macallan’s intricate whisky making process, as the whisky maker identifies the exceptional oak casks which impart the intense and highly complex flavour profile.
Soft aromas of vanilla with rich raisin lead the journey of discovery into this single malt whisky, followed by a sweet fusion of fresh apple, lemon and orange. Intense sweet raisin flavours dominate the palate, before giving way to vanilla and dark chocolate, with layers of light citrus zest. The finish is long, rich and velvety to offer a decadent whisky experience that will leave a lasting impression.
