Characteristics of The Macallan Ruby

The Easter Elchies House is a fine example of a Highland manor house. The estate covers 390 acres (158 hectares), of which some 90 acres (36 acres) are sown in the spring with our own exclusive Minstrel barley variety to make The Macallan.

The Macallan's curiously small spirit stills are the smallest on Speyside. Their unique size and shape give the spirit maximum contact with the copper, helping to concentrate the 'new make' spirit and provide the viscosity and rich, fruity, full-bodied flavours so characteristic of The Macallan. There are fourteen of these curiously small stills, crafted from copper, each holding an initial 'charge' of 3,900 litres! We take only 16% of the final distillation from the spirit stills to fill into our oak casks. This is the best of the best.

The Macallan's oak casks are the single greatest contributor to the outstanding quality, natural colours and distinctive aromas and flavours of The Macallan. In fact 60% of the flavour of a whisky is derived from the cask it is matured in. Because of this, The Macallan spends more per cask than any other distillery in sourcing, crafting, seasoning and caring for its casks. Spanish sherry seasoned oak casks deliver flavours and aromas of chocolate orange, dried fruits and spices; American sherry seasoned oak casks primarily provide sweet citrus, light spice, vanilla and light oak flavours and aromas; American bourbon seasoned oak barrels give flavours and aromas of sweet citrus, coconut and oak.

All colour in The Macallan whiskies, bottled by the distillery, is natural. These natural colours remain 'fixed', as opposed to artificial colour which fades relatively quickly in bright sunlight. Great skill is required by the Whisky Maker to achieve consistency of natural colour from bottling to bottling.

Tasting notes The Macallan Ruby

Sight Ruby. Nose Disturbed from a long sleep in a dark and quiet warehouse, European oak piques the nose before reluctantly admitting rich, dried fruits and an edgy trickle of treacle. A hesitant sweetness enters, then oak reasserts itself, burnished and mature. Taste A rush of ginger, nutmeg and resin herald orange, sultana and raisin with their restrained but pervasive sweetness. Clove is here and gone, leaving oak the undisputed maestro. The finish is long, lingering and reflective.
