The Macallan has been known for its unsurpassed commitment to the mastery of wood and spirits since its establishment in the 1824. A showcase of this, The Macallan 25 Year Old Sherry Oak Single Malt Scotch Whisky is aged for a quarter century in sherry-seasoned oak casks from Jerez, Spain. The Macallan takes great care to source, craft, season and care for these casks, as they account for approximately 60% of the final aromas and flavors of the whisky, according to a study commissioned by the distillery.
The Macallan 25 is one of the rare creations to have received a perfect 100 point rating from the Beverage Testing Institute and was described by Wine & Spirits Magazine as “the single malt against which all others must be judged.” It epitomizes the renowned and classic Macallan style, matured exclusively in Sherry-seasoned casks, predominantly crafted from European oak. This oak species is abundant in tannins, which helps give the dark and golden natural colors to the whisky, along with a rich flavor profile, led by spices and dried fruits.
