Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : cuivré à reflets dorés.
  • Nose : ample et subtil. S’ouvrant sur la mirabelle et le miel, il dévoile des notes de châtaigne, de résineux et de charbon. Il oscille ensuite entre les épices indiennes et moyen-orientales, le tout dans un écrin de mandarine et de sherry d’une grande délicatesse.
  • Palate : soyeuse, elle est marquée par la réglisse et le caramel, l’abricot sec et la noisette grillée. Des notes végétales lui apportent ensuite une once de fraîcheur et nous entraînent dans un registre plus fl oral, sur le lilas et la pivoine.
  • Overall : longue et crémeuse. Le sherry se fait ici plus présent mais laisse tout de même abricot, encens et groseille s’installer avec une certaine nonchalance.
The brand

The brand

This single malt is produced in limited quantities, using the finest ingredients right from the start of the production process through to its choice of the famous barley varieties Golden Promise and Optic. Its long fermentation and slow distillation result in a rich and concentrated distillate, of which only 16% is selected for maturation in casks of a rare quality, with the rest being run off as feints and foreshots. Its single malt is then aged, wholly or partially, in casks that have previously contained sherry. In fact, Macallan has even acquired various bodegas in Andalucia to guarantee this “tailored” maturation. Find out more
