A golden gentleman with a new name.

Ask any Scotch-head and they'll tell you The Macallan is as exquisite as they come. The distillery by the river Spey has been in the Whisky-making since 1824 and knows a thing or two about making great Spirits.

The distillery stands on a ridge above the River Spey and it got its name from an ancient church that had been burnt down in the 15th century. Today, The Macallan is on its way to become No.1 producer of malt Whisky in the World. Another very improtant thing to highlight is that they harvest their own barley exclusively in late August and early September. They have two "secrets" up their sleeve: top secret specially cultured yeast for the fermentation, and the smallest stills within the Scotch industry. We're not sure about the magic that occurs in those stills, but they produce wonderful Whisky with a heavy and oily flavor.

The Macallan Double Cask Gold is part of the Doble Cask range which marries the unmistakable character of the American oak with the Macallan's classic style. It's an amazing Speyside Single Malt Scotch aged in American oak and finished in European oak Sherry casks. The golden potion is ridiculously smooth and rich, and despite being the lightest caliber of the Macallan range, it's packed and loaded with the unmistakable legendary flavors from Speyside.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
