All about making whisky
The Macallan Oscuro is the result of a blend of whiskies distilled between 1987 and 1997. It is drawn exclusively from oak casks seasoned with Oloroso Sherry. An exceptionally high proportion of these are first fill, which endow the whisky with a rich deep colour and intense flavor. This sherry seasoned heritage and luscious richness is the inspiration for its name ‘OSCURO’, meaning ‘dark’ in Spanish.
The « 1824 » collection was created in 2009, in honor of the Macallan Distillery opening date and includes four Macallan style signature whiskies which were only available in travel retail at first.
This single malt is produced in limited quantities, using the finest ingredients right from the start of the production process through to its choice of the famous barley varieties Golden Promise and Optic. Its long fermentation and slow distillation result in a rich and concentrated distillate, of which only 16% is selected for maturation in casks of a rare quality, with the rest being run off as feints and foreshots. Its single malt is then aged, wholly or partially, in casks that have previously contained sherry. In fact, Macallan has even acquired various bodegas in Andalucia to guarantee this “tailored” maturation. Find out more
