The Macallan Rare Cask
RARE CASK, 2022 RELEASE - A sensorial experience with an incredibly rich and smooth complexity. Rare Cask is created from oak casks which exhibit an intense sweet raisin note coupled with an incredibly rich, smooth complexity. These hand-selected casks are a rare and special discovery.
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. Every cask of exceptional single malt whisky maturing at The Macallan Estate has its own personality, with little nuances which make them unique. From time to time our whisky makers come across casks maturing in warehouses which stand out from the others in a very particular way.
These rare casks have a 100% natural deep ruby mahogany colour, an intense sweet raisin note and a rich velvety mouthfeel.
