Class of 2018: The new classic.

Making Whiskies for two hundred years, Speyside wunderkind Macallan knows a thing or hundred about making our heads spin in astonishment. Using the precious knowledge and experience to their advantage, mixing them with limitless imagination and gumption, Macallan produces some of the most exclusive and ritzy Scotches out there (and in here).

One of their finest creations is the annual limited release of the Classic Cut. Each year, a team of experienced magicians heads out to create something new and extraordinary. The year 2018 is no different: this bottle houses a unique and unparalleled Single Malt that brings sweet and balanced flavor harmony of vanilla and citrus. The ABV of 51.2% was chosen by the Whisky Maker Ian Morrision as the sweet spot strength that reveals the flavors from Sherry oak casks at their best. It has indulgence written all over it (not literally – you can write your own words on the bottle).

Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
The Macallan Speyside estate is the only distillery ground in Scotland where you can fish for atlantic salmon. It sits right on the River Spey and from February to September is the perfect location for some salmon fishing.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
It's unknown where the Macallan name comes from, but there are a few possibilities circling around. The most popular one is that it comes from two words in the Gallic language. “Magh” which refers to a fertile piece of ground and “Eilean” which curiously enough means, “of Saint Fillans.” Over time “Magh Eilean” became Anglicised as Macallan.
