The Macallan Rare Cask Red Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) - 2022 release
Hot on the heels of the 2021 edition, the new Rare Cask Red represents whiskies drawn from some of the distillery's "finest and rarest sherry seasoned oak casks". Or as Sarah Burgess, Lead Whisky Maker puts it, "Every oak cask has its own personality, with little differences that make them unique. From time to time The Macallan Whisky Mastery Team discovers casks maturing in our warehouses which stand out from the others." Specifically, they display an intense, sweet raisin note coupled with better than expected complexity. While many have questioned whether there's actually any vintage variation in these annual bottlings, few have the chance to open them to taste. The stunning presentation alone means most will be snaffled away by collectors. 43% Alc./Vol.
