The Macallan Estate is some 360 hectares in size and stunning to boot. The whiskies themselves have long been those of great distinction and full of character. At the heart of their creation is the Estate's own Minstrel Barley and the smallest stills in Speyside. Both go to ensure the house's signature rich, fruity and full flavours are ever present. If you ever come across an old Scottish
Macallan have really pushed the boat out in creating this opulent and rare whisky. 16 (yes 16) different oak casks have been used to age the whisky thus ensuring it is a whisky of great complexity and furthermore the House has gone on to state that some of these barrels will never be used by them again. Just about every flavour arena is represented with your palate at once excited by fruit, spice, oak all washed down by a distinct impression of chocolate. Yum!
