The Macallan Oscuro is drawn exclusively from oak casks seasoned with Oloroso Sherry. An expectionally high proportion of these are first fill, which endow the whisky with a rich, deep colour and intense flavour. When the casks are at the peak of maturation, the whisky is gently reduced to 46.5% alcohol by volume with natural spring water drawn from boreholes deep under the Macallan Estate. It is then matured in slumbering casks for a least six month, thereby allowing the flavours to 'marry' and harmonise. It undergoes no further strength reduction and is non-chill filtered at ambient room temperature before being bottled for your enjoyment and satisfaction.
