The Macallan Exceptional Single Casks release 2018 for the US coming later this month…

Macallan Exceptional Single Cask 2018 03

In July last year, we reported about four upcoming Exceptional Single Casks from the Macallan to be released for the US market. First in late 2018 rumours were mounting for them to be released “soon”. Several sources are now confirming the 2018 releases are expected to be released later this month!

Only the Macallan knows why the 2018?releases weren’t?released in 2018, but this gives us hope seeing the elusive Rare Cask Batch No. 3 2018 soon as well. Credible sources have confirmed the number of bottles of each single cask, the prices are to be seen as suggested retail prices.

Unfortunately, we have no information on exact release date or its availability.
