Rare Cask, 2022 Release

A sensorial experience with an incredibly rich and smooth complexity.

In Search of the Singular

Every cask of exceptional single malt whisky maturing at The Macallan Estate has its own personality, with little nuances which make them unique. From time to time our whisky makers come across casks maturing in warehouses which stand out from the others in a very particular way. ​

These rare casks have a 100% natural deep ruby mahogany colour, an intense sweet raisin note and a rich velvety mouthfeel.

 

Rare Cask and Nicola Benedetti

We worked with acclaimed violinist Nicola Benedetti on Rare Cask, 2022 Release. Drawing on creativity and mastery, she reflects on the flavour notes of this special release:

“There is a point where all the elements of a work of art come together and overwhelm your senses. I can appreciate the aromas of spice, raisin and the slightly nutty flavour. I have always had a sensitive reaction to scents, just like the playing of a note or unveiling of a chord.

The smell of oak transports me back home to long weekend walks through the Auchinleck fields and glens near my Scottish hometown, Ayrshire. It has a feel to it that can only be experienced in Scotland.

Experiencing the greatest of creations is something we can’t fully explain. But we feel every bit of it.”
