Rare products like this come every few times in a lifetime. Macallan Rare Cask Single Malt Whisky is one for the books. To some the quality for a whisky is all about the age on the bottle, but for this product Macallan defies those standards and lets the whisky speak for itself.
Macallan Rare Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky is the newest addition to 1824 Masters Series. Each bottle was handpicked by Master Blender, Bob Dalgarno from only Spanish sherry seasoned oak casks. These casks are some of the rarest and most precious of all. Only barrels from the top 1% at the distillery are used to make Rare Cask. You’ll also notice that there is no-age-statement present on each bottle. There is speculation on this age, but the true age remains unknown.
The combination created by Macallan can be described as a richer, darker and more chocolately version compared to their other products. It represents an aggressive and more modern approach from the typically conservative whisky. By taking age out of the equation, Macallan choose to focus more on the wood aspect of the Rare Cask. Each bottle also comes in a swanky gatefold box. Perfect to display in your collection.
From the start Rare Cask is an intensely deep-amber color, which pays homage to the classic Macallan whisky. At 43% alcohol by volume, it opens with a nose that is very rich in citrus, with notes of chocolate, nut, and wood and warm spice. From your first sip, you will taste notes of baking spice, dark fruits like plum, apricots, walnuts and milk chocolate. Sweet and smooth on the finish. Also note the full-bodied and oak flavors on the finish.
