Built in 1700 Easter Elchies House is a fine example of a Highland manor house. The Macallan estate lies in an area of great natural beauty; its scale and diversity is unique among distilleries and is managed in harmony with the beautiful landscape. The estate covers 390 acres (158 hectares), of which some 90 acres are sown in the spring with our own exclusive Minstrel barley variety to make The Macallan. Sheep and highland cattle are at home here and woodland, beetle banks and areas of unharvested crop and unmown grassland attract biodiversity. The river Spey, one of Scotland’s most famous salmon rivers, borders the estate to the south and south-east.
MACALLAN 18 YRS SHERRY OAK SINGLE MALT
Complex nose with ripe fruit, intense barley and fine sherry notes. Sweet and intense in the mouth with plums, apples and apricot and just the slightest hint of caramel. Beautiful balance and seemingly a more youthful vigour than the age would have you believe. Delightful and satisfying.
