Packed with a beautiful balance of fruit and spice. On the nose, you can expect notes of dried fruit, vanilla, and cinnamon, followed by a palate of sweet raisins, figs, and dark chocolate. The sherry cask maturation process lends a distinct richness and depth to this whisky, with a long and smooth finish.

Production Methods

The Macallan 18 Year Old Sherry Oak is crafted using the finest, handpicked sherry-seasoned oak casks sourced from Jerez, Spain. These casks are then filled with new-make spirit, which is distilled from 100% malted barley and pure Highland spring water, before being left to mature for a minimum of 18 years. The natural color of the whisky is derived entirely from the casks in which it is matured, and the resulting spirit is rich, complex, and full-bodied with notes of dried fruits, spices, and wood smoke. The Macallan's dedication to using only the highest quality ingredients and traditional methods of production is evident in the exceptional quality of this whisky.

Serving Suggestions

The Macallan 18 Year Old Sherry Oak is a rich and complex whisky that is best enjoyed neat or with a splash of water to release its full range of flavors and aromas. It is recommended to serve the whisky in a traditional whisky glass, allowing it to breathe and fully express itself. The ideal serving temperature is around 18-20°C (64-68°F) to allow the full depth of flavor to be experienced.

About The Brand: The Macallan

In Craigellachie, Moray, Scotland, there is a single malt Scotch whisky distillery called The Macallan. A completely owned subsidiary of Edrington, The Macallan Distillers Ltd. acquired the Highland Distillers trademark in 1999. Next to Glenfiddich and, by some estimates, Glenlivet, The Macallan is widely regarded as the second- or third-highest-selling single-malt scotch. The Macallan was first solely aged in wood sherry barrels that were sent to the distillery from Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. The Fine Oak series, a new flagship offering from The Macallan that debuted in 2004, has whiskey that has been aged in bourbon oak barrels in addition to sherry casks. The Triple Cask Matured range replaced the Fine Oak line as of 2018. On our estate in Speyside, Scotland, is where the Macallan Distillery is located. Here, in a place fit for the attitude it reflects, we craft our unmatched single malts. Just 400 meters from our former distillery and next to Easter Elchies House, our distillery was created by the highly regarded international architectural firm Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners.
