The Macallan AERA is a single malt whisky inspired by important milestones in life and specially created to celebrate and commemorate these moments. Life is a journey of many different processes, and the journey of the oak cask gives whisky its unique flavour.
The Macallan, like a keeper of time and which houses the rarest original whiskies of all vintages in sherry casks, has selected the best oak casks to produce The Macallan AERA, a highly complex classic Macallan style of dried fruit flavours and aromas, with sweet hints of chocolate and honey, to celebrate and commemorate every precious moment in life.
The first milestone in the creation of The Macallan AERA is the selection of the highest quality American and European oak. The precious oak is grown from a single acorn to a tree, transported from the woodlands of America and northern Spain to Jerez in southern Spain, where it is naturally dried for up to four years, hand-crafted into casks and seasoned for up to two years in Sherry wine, and turned into the finest sherry casks.
After a long journey to Scotland, they are filled with new make spirit and matured over a long period of time, resulting in distinctive notes of which The Macallan is known for. . This single malt whisky is characterised by dried fruit sweetness, intertwined with rich honey notes, and a burst of refreshing citrus to enrich the flavour, leaving a long, lingering malt sweetness and a warming finish. Tasting this single malt whisky is an enriching journey for the taste buds.
