The second edition in the limited annual series, The Macallan Classic Cut 2018 Edition has an ABV of 51.2% chosen by the Whisky Maker Ian Morrison as the optimum strength to reveal a dominant sweetness and the well balanced flavours delivered by the exceptional Sherry Oak Casks. After allowing to breathe for 10-15 minutes, heightened flavours of citrus, sweet vanilla and spice come to the forefront, combined with a satisfyingly long dry oak finish.
Released from a limited supply and bottled near cask strength, The Macallan Classic Cut series exemplifies the vision of the whisky master who created it. Each year is made by a different member of the Whisky Mastery Team and Classic Cut 2019 is the first Classic Cut expression created by a female whisky maker, Polly Logan. A truly indulgent whisky, never to be repeated again, Classic Cut uses 100% sherry season casks at optimal maturity and bottled at an ABV that magnifies it’s liquid. Classic Cut is a whisky not just to be tasted, but to be experienced.
