2022 Release Crafted to showcase complexity and depth, Rare Cask is drawn from the broadest spectrum of casks, 16 different types, ever identified by the Master Whiskey Maker. Rare Cask's rich mahogany-red whisky showcases two of The Macallan's greatest and most defining strengths - sherry-seasoned oak casks and natural color. Ruby red color. On the nose soft notes of opulent vanilla and raisin give way to a sweet ensemble of apple, lemon, and orange. All are balanced by a spicy quartet of root ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. On the palate this spicy quartet is unwavering. Oak resonates, timeless, polished, and rich. Vanilla and chocolate lead the finale along with a light citrus zest. The finish is warming and woody.
