Small stills, BIG Scotch.

The Macallan distillery was founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and school teacher, in Craigellachie, Moray. Macallan is one of the first legally licensed distilleries in Scotland, one of the World's most cherished Single Malts, and the second best-selling Single Malt in the World.

What plays a big part in their success is the fact that they use curiously small stills, the smallest in Speyside in fact. The unique shape and size gives their liquid gold maximum contact with the copper, contributing to the new make spirit and delivers those rich, fruity and full-bodied flavours that are characteristic of The Macallan. These stills are so famous, in fact, that they have appeared on the back of a Bank of Scotland  £10 banknote, how about that. Also interesting is that they take only 16% of the final distillation from the stills to fill their casks. And they uses mostly Sherry casks from Jerez, Spain.

Matured in ex-bourbon and sherry casks, this is a fantastic malt from a world-renowned distillery. This is a complex and light expression, bringing together bold floral flavours with dull herbs and tangy fruits. The flavours of the barrel are also present, with a malty wooded undertone playing up the delicate floral notes. A caramel sweetness lasts throughout and ties together the wood and the fruit perfectly.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Much better 10s out there. Love their process and tradition, don't love this particular output
Just as suspected. Clean and crisp with hints of oak.
Adore and craving more - this MacAllan is, by far, my favorite semi-affordable-price-range Speyside single malt scotch. I could not ask for a more harmonious, intriguing, and delightful flavor spiral in nose, palette, and finish. The burn is timed perfectly, the spice, hints of sweet cherry, and a bit of smoked barrel, are divinely combined and unfolded on the palette. Once you've tasted it, it makes it rather challenging to go back to any single malt scotch that's a bit more budget-friendly.
Way over priced. It lost a few stars for that.
