Product Description

The third edition of its non-vintage 40 Year Old expression. The Macallan 40 Year Old 2017 Edition is limited to 465 bottles and defined as ‘The pinnacle of the Sherry oak cask range’ by the company and the first signed by Nick Savage and bottled at 44% ABV

The Macallan 40 Year Old 2017 Edition is exclusively matured in hand-picked Oloroso sherry seasoned oak casks from Jerez, Spain. The spirit is the result of maturation from three different casks; a European oak sherry butt, a European oak sherry hogshead, and an American oak sherry butt which created the rich and complex whisky, displaying a natural deep copper colour.

According to the distillery ‘, this highly limited release is a 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.

Colour: Deep Copper 

Nose: Sultanas with gingers and wood spice. A background of sweet cinnamon and citrus emerges.

Palate: Opens with soft cinnamon spices, quickly developing into a mouth coating of date and figs.

Finish: Long, rich with a lingering cinnamon spice.
