The 'Classic Cut' series is designed to offer a different flavor experience year on year. In 2021, for the second time in the series, Macallan's 'Whisky Mastery Team' had the freedom the explore the distillery's vast inventories. Ex-bourbon American oak casks take the lead, adding a sweet lightness, supported by sherry seasoned American oak casks which contribute further depth and complexity. Bottled at high strength, it guarantees a unique Macallan experience.
The Macallan is easily recognizable as one of the most prolific brands of elite-status single malt Scotch on the market today. The Macallan Distillery was founded in 1824 by school teacher and barley farmer Alexander Reid, soon after the Scottish Excise Act was passed to legalize the distillation of whisky. The brand specializes in high-quality single malt Scotch whisky and is one of the first brands of Scotch to take advantage of the marketability, taste, and profound influence available in the making of premium
whisky – the scale of which has afforded Macallan ownership of up to 1/3 of the global single malt Scotch market. This superior whisky combines classic distillation techniques with an innovative specialty in casks, and is the only Scotch distillery in the world to have its own Master of Wood - a role involving sourcing and curating Macallan’s 200,000+ oak barrel stocks derived from trees grown in the US and Spain.
