8 Photos, 8 Casks, Monumental Blend.

Let’s play a game: we say "classy", you say "Macallan". No lie, this almost 200 years old Speyside distillery knows how to create something monumental – repeatedly. First, it’s all the know-how only an ancient establishment would have. Then, it’s their top secret, specially cultured barley, harvested in late summer. Add the smallest stills in the industry (size does matter), and you have an unbeatable formula.

The Macallan’s Masters of Photography: Magnum Edition is a magnificent collectible expression presented in a ritzy screaming-red box, which holds six prints and a photo book celebrating the construction of tThe Macallan’s new distillery. Inside the sexy bottle, though, is a fantasy created by Whisky Sorceress Sarah Burgess – a sumptuous blend coming from eight casks with different characters: spicy, oaky, black cherry, red wine, sweet and unrepeatable.

Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
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.
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.
