Distillery Visit - The Macallan



The last five years have been extremely vibrant for the whisky industry. Many new distilleries and whisky-making projects of varying sizes have been proposed and built. Arguably one of the biggest and most controversial is the re-housing of The Macallan, the hugely popular single malt brand, in to a brand new production facility. This opened back in the Summer and Matt paid a visit to take a look on a recent visit to Speyside.

Review - Tamdhu Batch Strength No.004

This new single malt is the fourth expression in the limited edition high ABV series from the increasingly prolific Speyside distillery of Tamdhu (pronounced tam-doo). The Tamdhu Batch Strength No.004 has been created using only ex-Oloroso sherry casks, some made from American oak and some from European oak. These have been hand selected by Sandy McIntyre, the Distillery Manager at Tamdhu, and is designed to reinforce the brand's commitment to the use of top quality ex-sherry casks. This fourth version is released at the natural strength of 57.8% ABV and is non chill-filtered and of natural colour.

Review - Highland Park Twisted Tattoo

This whisky is a new single malt from the Orcadian distillery of Highland Park. It features spirit matured in first-fill ex-bourbon casks and ex-Rioja red wine casks - the first time they have used such wine barrels for maturation - and is bottled at 16 years of age. The packaging is inspired by the Nordic legend of the Midgard Serpent and features bespoke designs by tattoo artist Colin Dale. He is renowned for using traditional freestyle non-electric tattoo techniques and is inspired by the lost skin art of Inuit, Native American and Nordic cultures.

Review - Tamdhu 15 years old

The Tamdhu 15 years old is a new core range single malt from the increasingly popular Speyside distillery. The whisky has been matured in ex-Oloroso sherry casks made from American and European oak. These were selected by Sandy McIntyre, the Distillery Manager at Tamdhu, and then married together. The new expression will sit alongside the 10 and 12 year olds, plus the Batch Strength in the domestic core range. Tamdhu is becoming well known for its use of ex-sherry casks and last year saw their award-winning Spain To Speyside campaign take many plaudits. To watch the short film - click here.

Review - Tobermory 12 years old

This whisky is a new core expression from the remote distillery of Tobermory and signals the re-birth of the brand as a single malt. The Tobermory 12 years old has been released following a two-year hiatus in production at the distillery. This has allowed a major overhaul and refurbishment of the old production equipment, including replacing the stills. Other work has seen other buildings upgraded, the replacement of a roof and a new visitor centre. Production is due to restart shortly in May. This new 12 years old is created using Tobermory's classic non-peated style of malt and has been matured in American oak casks.
