The Macallan 30 Years Old reveals hints of citrus orange and aromatic resin drawn from the enveloping depths of The Macallan’s bespoke oak sherry casks from Spain. In these casks the luscious spirit has quietly matured, sheltered from the tumultuous events of the passing decades. Unveiling its richness to the full, The Macallan 30 Years Old bears comforting proof, if yet more were needed, of The Macallan’s legendary devotion to single malt of the very highest quality. Distinctively presented in an eye-catching and attractive blue wooden box, adding allure to the already exceptional whisky appeal.
Macallan sits in close proximity to a ford across the river Spey, the site originally held a farm distillery, which was frequented by cattle drovers crossing the ford. The distillery was expanded toward the end of the nineteenth century and renamed Macallan-Glenlivet and in 1980 the ‘Glenlivet’ suffix was removed.
From the 1950s onwards, Macallan has been greatly expended. This was down to great demand, for Macallan had become very sought after. Old vintages are highly prized and very valuable.
The Macallan has largely used Sherry casks for the maturation of their whisky. A very characteristic Speysider,the distillery recently brought out the Macallan Fine Oak range, which featured plenty of Bourbon-matured malt, and an eighteen year-old from this range, took first place in Whisky Magazine’s “Best Malts of the World”.
