The Macallan Rare Cask Vintage 2020 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The 2020 release of Macallan Rare Cask is a smooth, sweet single malt that has been matured in a selection of sherry casks. Aromas of vanilla, raisin, fresh apple, lemon and orange fill the nose. The palate offers notes of dark chocolate-covered raisins, vanilla and light citrus that linger in the finish.
This is the 2020 release of the annual batched series of The Macallan Rare Cask. Bottled in 2020, this release is crafted from some of the rarest and most precious stocks maturing in The Macallan Estate in Speyside. Each batch in the series represents the volume of just 50 European sherry seasoned oak butts. Presented at 43% abv in a beautifully sculpted glass decanter.
Say hello to the 2020 release of The Macallan Rare Cask! The Rare Cask series from the legendary distillery in Speyside features whisky drawn from hand-selected European sherry seasoned oak butts, showing off the fantastically rich and complex flavour profile we know and love from Macallan.
The folks at The Macallan are also known to be immensely meticulous about their casks, Sherry-seasoned ones in particular. The Rare Cask series has their Whisky Mastery Team selecting only the finest of those casks in order to craft truly exceptional expressions. Curated by The Macallan Master of Wood, the 2020 edition of the Rare Cask proves once again that all that diligence isn’t for naught. One whiff of the rich raisin scent and a single sip of the intense, smooth, and luxurious liquid is enough to make anyone a believer.
Soft notes of opulent vanilla and raisin pique the nose, giving way to a sweet ensemble of apple, lemon and orange.
Oak resonates, timeless, polished and rich. Vanilla and chocolate lead the finale along with a light citrus zest.
Full and warming.
