The Macallan Elegancia was a travel retail exclusive released in 2002 and discontinued in 2009. It bears a 12 year age statement and was matured in a combination of ex-fino and ex-Oloroso casks, a deviation from the traditional house style of resting its spirit in strictly ex-Oloroso sherry casks. This single malt bottling was a precursor to the release of Macallan's Fine Oak series in the early-2000s (also aged in ex-Oloroso sherry, but blended with spirit aged in ex-bourbon casks). Fino sherry is a lighter style of this fortified wine than Oloroso, and its casks are not nearly as commonly used in Scotch production as those of Oloroso. Bottled at 40% ABV.
