The Macallan AERA Royal Black is an exciting Taiwanese exclusive release from Scotland’s most famous distillery. The release has been surrounded by a lot of hype, and with good reason.
Aged in a combination of European and American Oak casks, this dram follows the latest Macallan trend of moving away from exclusively sherry cask matured whisky, but there is no doubt that the signature sherried style is still on full display here. The precious sherry cask oak was grown in Jerez in southern Spain and the forests in the north before being dried for four years, made into wooden barrels and then sedated for two years before being filled with Sherry. This process is carried out to strict regulations set by Macallan’s Master of Wood and it results in supreme quality casks that have dramatic effects on the distillery’s outstanding spirit.
This brand new Macallan is the first in a new series aimed at honouring the world’s visionaries by experimenting with the whisky making process. Inspired by surreal art, the Concept Number 1 has been matured in sherry seasoned oak casks and then transferred to ex-bourbon casks for a similar time period. It is crafted to explore the differing effects casks can have on a dram while highlighting the distillery’s commitment to wood management and mastery.
