It’s a classic The Macallan Single Malt but more of it with perfect balance.

Founded in 1824, The Macallan is one of the “Big 3” Single Malts in Scotland. Fortunately, they have achieved this scale without sacrificing quality. A change in UK labeling laws aced them out of their “Speyside” designation. But just because the British Parliament gerrymandered the “official” boundaries doesn’t mean whiskey-lovers have to pay any attention.

Their achievements are numerous — including setting the record price ever paid at auction for a single bottle of Scotch. They produce a very broad range of world-class Single Malt Whiskies that have a huge global following.

We travel a lot for work and pleasure. And because we are Whisky-nerds to the core, we don’t mind the occasional airport layover because it gives us the chance to cruise the duty-free shops for rare drams. The Macallan Estate Reserve is one of those. It is normally bottled exclusively for the travel retail market so it’s nearly impossible to get your hands on it in the local shops. In this case, it’s a fine, classic The Macallan Single Malt aged in 100% Sherry hogshead casks and bottled at an extremely pleasant and perfectly balanced at 45.7% ABV.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
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.
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.
