Scotland- To create Double Cask, Macallan brings new oak from America across to Spain. At least 18 years later, the whiskies are then harmoniously united with the best European sherry seasoned oak casks. This marriage creates flavors of rich dried fruits, ginger, and toffee.
Scotch, quite simply, is whisky made and aged at least three years in Scotland. All whisky made in Scotland is Scotch, and must follow specific production regulations.
All Scotch varieties fall within two broad categories or are blends of these two: malt whisky and grain whisky. Malt whisky must be 100 percent malted barley. Grain whisky may include wheat, rye, corn or other grains.
