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).

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Macallan is a popular choice among the younger Whisky drinking crowd and they do a lot of marketing activities to keep in touch with them. In 2016, they created a Facebook chatbot that answered questions about the brand and its Whiskies.
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.
