No. 6 brings together the art of whisky making with Lalique exquisite craftsmanship to create a stunning whisky encased in the finest crystal decanter. This rich, complex single malt takes its unique natural colour and character from first-fill sherry-seasoned oak casks from Spain, handcrafted by the master craftsmen of Jerez de la Fontera, the home of sherry.
The casks are taken from a single cooperage in order to ensure the infinite quality and character at the heart of this rich single malt. The cooperage exclusively creates Spanish oak casks, which once seasoned with sherry, create the unique flavor of the exquisite whisky. Rich in spice and dried fruit with a layer of heady oranges groves, this is an enticing, dark, whisky that delivers classic Macallan character.
