Product details

Tasting note

  • Nose : concentré, riche. Absolument voluptueux, il nous fait littéralement pénétrer à l’intérieur d’un chai d’une bodega de Jerez de la Frontera. Le bois précieux se mélange aux parfums envoûtants du sherry : noix, menthe verte, amande, abricot, fruits rouges et noirs, cerise à l’eau-de-vie, chocolat noir, café, vanille… Un air salin s’engouffre doucement.
  • Palate : captivante, moelleuse. L’orge maltée transperce le voile de levures (flor). Elle ajoute des notes herbacées (foin coupé, malt vert) et des plantes aromatiques (tilleul, sauge). Puis, elle se fait plus huileuse (tapenade) et florale (jacinthe, pivoine). Épicée (poivre, cannelle) et gourmande, elle évoque un rhum capiteux ou bien une crème brûlée.
  • Overall : longue, soyeuse. D’une rare élégance, ses épices agrémentent chaque saveur. Son caractère racé est marqué par le tabac frais, le cuir, le bois précieux, la cire et l’encens. La rétro-olfaction est d’une rare complexité (fruits rouges, tubéreuse, mangue, figue sèche). Le verre vide est marqué par les fruits secs (noisette, noix de macadamia).

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

Merchant

This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.
