The Story of Sherry Oak
Sherry Seasoned Style
The Macallan Sherry Oak range features a series of single malt whiskies matured exclusively in hand-picked Oloroso sherry seasoned oak casks from Jerez, Spain, for richness and complexity.
When matured exclusively in sherry seasoned oak casks from Jerez, our rich, fruity and full bodied ‘new make’ spirit is transformed into a classic single malt characterized by spice, dried fruits and mature oak with a depth of flavor that develops through the range, from 12 to 40 years old.
To create the range, we work closely with fully integrated 'tree to finished seasoned cask' companies in Spain; to identify oak trees in the forests of northern Spain, fell the trees, saw and air dry the oak staves before shipping them to the south for further air-drying to reduce the moisture even further. The casks are then seasoned for 18 months before making their journey to Scotland to be filled with The Macallan 'new make' spirit.
