The Macallan Cask Strength was introduced to the USA during 2002 to appeal to both current Macallan drinkers and lovers of cask strength whisky. Bob Dalgarno and his team of nosers laboured long and hard to select the right balance of first and second fill sherry oak casks from Spain that when combined created a Macallan of tremendous strength, power and complexity. Conscious that whisky at natural cask strength of almost 60% abv can be overly pungent Bob has managed to balance the obvious high alcohol with classic clove like spices and dried fruits. Mark Izatt, Brand Manager for The Macallan in the USA comments "Cask strength is currently taking the US by storm, and is proving equally popular with both The Macallan loyalist and new drinkers."
