April 17, 2018

Founded in 1824, The Macallan is one of the “Big 3” single malts in Scotland. Fortunately, they have achieved this scale without sacrificing quality. Their achievements are numerous — including setting the record price ever paid at auction for a single bottle of Scotch. They produce a very broad range of world-class single malt Whiskies that have a huge global following.

The Macallan 12 Year Old Sherry Oak Cask Scotch and Rich

The Macallan 12 YO is the core of The Macallan lineup. When you walk into the local pub and simply order a “Macallan,” this is what will be poured into your glass — and they are sophisticated enough to keep a quantity of it on hand. It is not “just” finished in Sherry casks. This Highlander is aged its full twelve years in Spanish Sherry wood and for aficionados this particular Whisky defines the Sherried Whisky category. That means you get creamy toffee notes all day long with a rich rancio backdrop of fig and honey. It is the perfect Whisky to introduce a newbie to the world of single malts, but it will also be one of your favorites for life.

The “Big 3” single malts are #1 Glenlivet, #2 The Macallan, and #3 Glenfiddich. Together, they produce over 20 million bottles of Whisky per year — the vast majority of which is used in their respective single malt offerings.

The suit measurements below are for reference only. Please allow ±0.25" difference for actual suit measurement.

Chest - Measure chest just under arms and across shoulder blades, holding tape level (don’t hold your breath). Be sure to cross over the shoulder blades and the fullest part of your chest. Blazer sizes are equal to your chest size. For example, if you have a 38" chest, you would wear a size 38 blazer.

Alteration Notes:

Neck - Measure around the middle of the neck, around your Adams apple or fullest part of our neck, keeping tape level. Allow for index finger to fit between the tape and your neck for a comfortable fit. 


Sleeve/Arm – With your arm around your hip, bend your arm to a 90 degree angle. Measure from the middle of the back of your neck, across your shoulder and down outside of your arm past elbow to your wrist. 


Waist - Look inside one of your pants' waistband. Generally, the size will be written. If you cannot find it, follow these guidelines to find your correct size.
Keep one finger between tape and your body and measure around your natural waistline (usually at the bellybutton). Pants sizes are equal to your waist size. For example, if you have a 38" waist, you should wear a size 38 pants. Remember of your slacks are 1-2" too big or too small, a tailor can easily take them in or out.
Otherwise, use a pair of pants that fit you well, measure from the top of the inner pant leg seam to the opening at the bottom of the pant leg. The number of inches is the inseam length, rounded to the nearest half inch.
The European size of slacks is 16 more than the US size. For example, a size 52 (European) is equivalent to a size 36 (US).


Inseam: With appropriate shoes on, measure from your crotch to your desired pant length. Inseam measurements vary by style. Generally use a pair of pants that fit you well, measure from the top of the inner pant leg seam to the opening at the bottom of the pant leg. The number of inches is the inseam length, rounded to the nearest half inch.
