18 Year Old Double Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2020
Boasting a rich history dating back to 1824, The Macallan is one of Scotland’s most renowned and respected whisky producers. Located in the illustrious Speyside region, Macallan has built up a cult reputation for its Single Malt releases; particularly rare expressions can sell for thousands of pounds, and demand and prices are constantly increasing.
Macallan always has a little something extra up its sleeve. In 2020 they magically revealed two new additions to the Double Cask range. The one we’re most excited about is the Macallan Double Cask 18 Year Old Annual 2020 Release. Matured for almost two decades in a combination of American and European oak that has been seasoned with Sherry, the resulting whisky Macallan at its finest; aromatic, amber and abiding with caramelised ginger, Christmas cake fruit, mulled wine spices, dark Jamaican gingerbread, sticky toffee pudding, crème Brûlée and orange zest. Whisky Maker Kirsteen Campbell considers oak the “single greatest contributor” to the Macallan style, and she’s spot on because the extra years have given this an almost unfathomable depth.
“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.
