The Macallan Ruby certainly contains some of the oldest whisky in the 1824 series and also the most typical flavours of Macallan. Ruby has spent the longest time in only the very finest sherry casks, so the colour has been taken on naturally. Savour the rich, luxurious fruits of long sherry cask maturation.
Macallans exceptional oak casks are the single greatest contributor to the outstanding quality, natural colours and distinctive aromas and flavours of the whisky. The oak casks are crafted to their own specifications and account for up to 80% of the final aromas and flavours of The Macallan. Because of this, they spend more per cask than any other distillery in sourcing, crafting, seasoning and caring for their casks.
