Macallan 18-Year-Old Color Collection Single Malt Whisky
Part of the Color Collection from Macallan, the 18-year-old single malt has been aged in American oak casks, enhanced by a delicate addition of European oak, and seasoned with sherry wine from Jerez de la Frontera, Spain.
The Color Collection, comprising 12, 15, 18, 21, and 30-year-old expressions, is a celebration of The Macallan’s commitment to natural color and sherry seasoning.
The colors of Jerez are reflected in this 18-year-old expression by artist and graphic designer David Carson, who captured the warmth of the evening sun as it shines on the “teja” tiles on the roofs of the bodegas in Jerez de la Frontera against a backdrop of vineyards with chalk-white soil, the perfect environment to enjoy a dram of The Macallan.
