Rare Cask Batch No.3 Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2018
We are proud to announce the third release in this highly collectable range. Batch No.3 of Macallan’s Rare Cask series is handcrafted from only fifty first-fill European and American oak casks, each of which has been seasoned with Sherry. Only bottled in small batches four times a year, Batches No.1 and No.2 were snapped up by collectors and Macallan fans, and we’ve no doubt that No.3 will follow suit.
Released in 2018, this is the very pinnacle of Macallan’s core range of Single Malts and is that last of the three releases for 2018. Handsomely packaged in a dark red fold-out gift box, the whisky itself displays vanilla and freshly split logs from the American oak, subtle spices from the European oak, raisins from the Sherry influence, and a rich combination of apple tart, vanilla cream, lemon meringue pie, lemon zest, chocolate orange, Christmas cake and polished antique wood. With only about 1% of Macallan’s outturn being seen as worthy of going into this whisky, it’s fast becoming a legend.
“Macallan is the daddy, as far as legendary whiskies go.” So says whisky expert Ian Buxton. This Speyside behemoth enjoys huge global demand, perfectly illustrated by a 30-year-old cask breaking auction records when it sold for $375,000 (US) in Hong Kong. Deservedly so, it remains the aficionado’s choice when it comes to Scotch.
