Macallan 40 Year Old

Macallan 40 Year Old. The youngest release in The Macallan Red series has been matured in sherry-seasoned oak casks for 40 years before being bottled in 2020. Fruit aromas of orange, grapefruit, dark chocolate, dry oak spice, poached pear, and figs fill the nose. The palate offers notes of ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla, as well as sweet malt, figs, and delicate wisps of wood smoke that linger in the finish.

The Red Collection is an exquisite range of distinguished and rare single malt scotch whiskies that capture The Macallan’s deep respect for tradition and craftsmanship. The distinctive red color is inspired by The Macallan ‘Choice Old’ range, released over a century ago in 1903, and brought to life by beautiful illustrations by acclaimed Spanish painter and illustrator Javi Aznarez.

The Macallan 40-Year-Old is made from sherry-seasoned casks and bottled at 48.1% abv.

The nose has orange and grapefruit combined with dark chocolate, along with antique oak and wood spices, fig and poached pear. The palate has warm spices, with ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon with vanilla. Malty notes and figs are present throughout before a long finish with delicate wisps of woodmote.


The Macallan Red Collection reflects our deep respect for time, tradition and craftsmanship. It is a celebration of the rich range of reds present naturally in The Macallan in every step of the process.

The distinctive red colour weaves its way through our history, starting with the name of our founder Alexander Reid—literally “The Red”, to The Macallan’s ‘Choice Old’ range released over a century ago in 1903, through to Allan Shiach marking vintage bottles of The Macallan with a red ribbon in the 1980s.
