Macallan Exceptional Single Cask Whisky Launched
Cask 88 are happy to hear that The Macallan, one of the most popular Speyside distilleries, has launched its Exceptional Single Cask range – a series of seven whiskies matured for between 12 and 22 years.
The cask strength whiskies have been drawn from seven ex-Sherry casks, filled between 1995 and 2004, and bottled without artificial colouring. Charlie Whitfield, manager of brand education and prestige whiskies at The Macallan, said the range had been inspired by the ‘whisky maker’s bench’ found in the single malt’s sample room.
‘This stunning new range, bottled at cask strength, presents those particular cask samples which have taken our whisky makers by surprise,’ he added.
‘The Macallan’s Exceptional Single Cask range provides an opportunity to experience those moments’ and is available now in the US, with an estimated retail price of US$250-1,300 per bottle. The range will later be released in ‘select international markets’ if you are interested in this bottle, as part of the extensive service offering to our clients, we do offer a concierge service that allows customers to seek out particular expressions and releases that will complete their collection. If there is a particular whisky that you are after, contact us today to let us know what you’re looking for.
The Macallan Distillery
As mentioned earlier, The Macallan is a very popular distillery with customers visiting our online store. Cask 88 recently made history by advising on an auction that made history for the most expensive cask of whisky sold at auction you can read more about it here.
The Macallan distillery was a highlight of a tour of Scottish distilleries we visited this summer with customers who wanted to undertake a variety of tastings. The experience, for any true whisky enthusiast, was one we cannot recommend enough. The entrance is well-recognised sign that you have arrived somewhere special.
