Matured for 30 years in sherry-seasoned American and European oak, the Macallan Double Cask 30 is billed as a perfectly balanced single malt with notes of cinnamon, Madagascan vanilla, dried fruits and toffee, with a sweet, warm taste and character.

Kirsteen Campbell, master whisky maker at The Macallan, said: “The Macallan Double Cask 30 Years Old is a modern take on our classic 30-year-old and is an exceptional aged single malt. With a rich combination and depth of flavour and a complex character, it is a whisky to be savoured...It is the oak that gives the whisky its natural colour and is the single greatest contributor to the quality, distinctive aromas and flavours.”

The Macallan has collaborated with acclaimed American artist and photographer Erik Madigan Heck to showcase the flavour profile of Double Cask 30 Years Old. His imagery takes inspiration from the natural landscape on The Macallan Estate as well as the taste and natural colour of the whisky.

Heck said: “Nature lies at the heart of my work, and I was greatly inspired by the breath-taking natural landscape on The Macallan Estate...I also created a still life image featuring vibrant colours and varying textures to portray the whisky’s luscious flavours while natural light captures its depth of character.”

The Macallan Double Cask 30 Years Old (43% ABV) has a RRP of £3,000. Encased in a solid oak presentation box, it will be available at The Macallan Boutiques, premium bars and restaurants and specialist retailers globally from September 2021.
