The Macallan Classic Cut Limited 2018 Edition 700ml 51.2%
700ml: 51.2% vol.
Cask Type: Oloroso sherry
Bottler: The Macallan Distillery
Release Date: 2018
This is the second edition of a new series of annual releases from the Macallan following on from their Classic Cut 2017 first edition bottling. The ABV of 51.2% was chosen by their Whisky Maker, Ian Morrison as the optimum strength to reveal a dominant sweetness and the well-balanced flavours delivered by the exceptional Sherry Oak Casks.
The folks at the distillery comment:
“After allowing to breathe for 10-15 minutes, heightened flavours of citrus, sweet vanilla and spice come to the forefront, combined with a satisfyingly long dry oak finish. Classic Cut 2018 is a truly indulgent single malt whisky”.
