The Macallan Enigma

At The Edge Of Another Discovery

The Macallan Enigma is the pinnacle of the journey, created closest to the heart of The Macallan. Aged exclusively in European oak sherry-seasoned casks from one cooperage in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain, this is a whisky that signifies the essence of The Macallan.

Perfectly capturing the ultimate sherry richness, the Enigma single malt is characterised by full, lingering flavours of dried fruits, rich cinnamon and intensely smooth wood spice; heightening anticipation in our never-ending quest for perfection.

Portraying the cross-section of an oak-tree. The Macallan Enigma depicts the heart of The Macallan, revealing a new journey and an undiscovered world once again.

Marks of Distinction

From The Cask

Every Macallan single malt reveals the unrivalled commitment to the mastery of wood and spirit for which The Macallan has been known since it was established in 1824. It is an expression of our enduring desire to go beyond ordinary, to seek out the extraordinary, and create peerless single malts.

Our reputation for the extraordinary is characterised by the exceptional oak casks for which The Macallan is renowned. Sourced, crafted, toasted and seasoned under the watchful eye of the Master of Wood, the hand-picked casks are delivered to the demanding specifications of the Whisky Mastery Team. It is the oak that makes the greatest contribution to the quality, natural colour and distinctive aromas and flavours at the heart of this single malt whisky.

Once filled, the maturing spirit remains undisturbed in the same casks for the necessary number of years it needs to be worthy of its destined Macallan expression. It is these oak casks that make the greatest contribution to the quality, natural colour and distinctive aromas and flavours which lie at the heart of The Macallan single malt.
