The Macallan 15 Year Old Fine Oak Triple Cask Matured Single Malt Scotch
The Macallan 15 YO Fine Oak Triple Cask Matured Single Malt Scotch
The Macallan 15 Year Old Fine Oak Triple Cask Matured Single Malt Scotch reveals the unrivalled commitment to the mastery of wood and spirit for which Macallan has been known since it was established in 1824. It is an expression of Macallan's enduring desire to go beyond ordinary, to seek out the extraordinary and create peer single malts. Macallan's reputation for the extraordinary is characterised by the exceptional oak casks for which Macallan is renowned. Sourced, crafted, toasted and seasoned under the watchful eye of Macallan's Master of Wood, the hand-picked casks are delivered to the demanding specifications of Macallan's Master Distiller. Once filled, the maturing spirit remains undisturbed in the same cask for a full fifteen years. It is the oak that makes the greatest contribution to the quality, natural colour and distinctive aromas and flavours at the hear of the single malt whisky. It is a uniquely complex combination of oak casks that delivers the extraordinarily smooth and delicate character of the Macallan Triple Cask 15 Year Ol. A trinity of spirits, matured individually in sherry seasoned European oak casks, sherry seasoned American oak casks and ex-bourbon American oak casks and then exquisitely and expertly married together to create a sublime single malt with vibrant orange and chocolate flavours.
With the colour of rich straw, aromas of rose and cinnamon sublimely fill the nostrils. On the palate, intensely rich chocolate with high notes of orange and raisin. The finishing is lingering, with orange and dried fruit to complete the experience.
The Macallan Six Pillars
- The Spiritual Home
Easter Elchies house proudly watches over the distillery in Speyside, Scotland. Built in 1700, this Jacobean Manor house is the Macallan's spiritual home.
- Curiously Small Stills
The Macallan's curiously small and uniquely shaped copper stills help concentrate the flavour of the 'New Make' spirit.
- The Finest Cut
The Macallan takes one of the finest new make spirit 'cuts' of any distillery in Scotland - typically a mere 16%
- Exceptional Oak Casks
The Macallan Double Cask is exclusively matured in sherry seasoned oak casks from America and Europe. These casks are filled with aged sherries in SPain and left to season before receiving new make spirit.
- Natural Colour
The interaction of spirit and wood alone delivers the variety of rich and natural colours that distinguish the Macallan range.
- Peerless Spirit
The Macallan is celebrated far and wide by experts and discerning drinkers as the world's most precious whisky.
