Product Description

Release Date: 31st October 2019 - Shipping End of Nov 2019

This rare and luxurious Macallan has been bottled by Hard To Find Whisky.  Distilled at the legendary Macallan distillery in February 1989 and bottled in April 2019, having spent over 30 Years maturing in a single high quality Sherry Cask (Cask #2824). The result is a unique Single Cask expression that showcases the glorious character of well aged Macallan, and also the distinctive influence of carefully selected Oloroso Sherry seasoned oak. This Macallan has been bottled at natural Cask Strength of 44.1% ABV, with no chill filtering and 100% natural colour.

Single Cask bottlings of Macallan have become increasingly rare due to the cost and scarcity of casks. It is rarer still to find one with such an impressive age, and one that has been matured in a Sherry cask. You are unlikely to find an Independent bottling of Macallan of this age, with this quality, at this price again.

Colour - Dark mahogany in colour with an indulgent nose of rich sherry, orange, clove and wood smoke. 

Palate - The palate is rich and generous with dried fruits, smooth chocolate, sherry notes, blood orange, cinnamon, nutmeg and subtle oak character.  This is all wrapped up in a silky, mouth coating and textured palate. 

Finish - The finish is long and rich with a harmonious balance of sweetness and spice.
