the Macallan Exceptional Single Cask Release 2018!

Macallan Exceptional Single Cask 2018 03

The Macallan will soon announce the first four Exceptional Single Casks Release 2018.

Initially, the Macallan said 14 Exceptional Single Casks was to be released in 2017, but only seven are mentioned officially by the Macallan. A few days ago the first evidence of four new Exceptional Single Casks surfaced. If this means the Macallan will make the Exceptional Single Cask range an annual release, or if these four are just part of the original 14 single casks is of course to be seen.

  1. I’ve seen 2017 release numbers 11, 12 and 13 in various markets… 13 believe was for London (I think for Harrod’s?), 12 South America and 11 I forget where I’ve seen but definitely somewhere! still missing 9, 10 and 14 from 2017 that I dont know about

    • Thanks for commenting Ely. Yes, of course you are right. No 13 is for Harrods. No 11 was released for a hotel chain in the US, but I can’t find No 12. Strange the official info is not up to date. However, it will be interesting seeing where the Exceptional Cask Series goes.
