Macallan 1988 Exceptional Cask #3890-09 / 2018 Release

The Macallan Exceptional Casks series was relaunched in 2017. The range takes its name from a number of single cask bottlings Macallan released during the 1990s, which are often described as some of "the greatest Macallan of them all."

Distilled on the 26th April 1988 and bottled over 30 years later after maturing in single American oak sherry butt #3890 (Ref: 2018/ASB-3890/09).

Selected by Macallan Whisky Maker, Sarah Burgess, this was the ninth cask to be reserved for the 2018 batch of releases, on 10th July 2018.

One of only 130 bottles.
