Macallan is one of my favorite single malt Scotches and this holiday season, shipping in November, Macallan will be offering a new eye-catching dazzling box for all your gift giving needs (hint hint, nudge nudge). A photo of the new box is to the right. The bottling will be their most well known 18 Year, aged in Sherry Oak casks from Jerez, Spain (as opposed to their Fine Oak line), so nothing about the Scotch itself changes. What you get, for the same price, is a limited edition dazzling box that will definitely shine in your Scotch case or bar.
I visited the Macallan distillery about a year ago, took part in their Most Precious Tour and had a fantastic time. I sampled everything from their New Make Whisky to their 30 Year Fine Oak and can say that my favorite was the Macallan 18. The 30 Year was fantastic but you simply can’t beat the quality and price point of the Macallan 18 (around $150 for 750 mL).
If you aren’t sure what to get your favorite Scotch loving friend this winter, consider an old favorite in a fancy limited edition box. 🙂
