MACALLAN 1990 Over 20 Years 4th Edition S.V 49,2%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: COL19046

Il se dégage de ce Macallan une grande sensation de puissance. Allant droit au but, c’est avec une simplicité et un naturel déconcertants qu’il déploie toute l’étendue de sa palette aromatique et gustative. Plus d’une heure après la dégustation, le fond du verre vide évoque les parfums admirablement floraux (pivoine, lys), chocolatés et réglissés d’un Havane.

Profil : tonique, élégant. Orge verte, fruits exotiques (ananas, banane), fruits confits (citron) et épices (curry, muscade). Notes salines, vanillées, crémeuses, médicinales et fleuries (mimosa).

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré soutenu.
  • Nose : frais, élégant. Le premier nez révèle une note d’orge verte et printanière dans laquelle viennent s’enchevêtrer des fruits exotiques (ananas, banane). Crémeux et vanillé, il devient au fur et à mesure médicinal (camphre), salin et épicé (curry, muscade). Complexe, il évolue sur des fleurs capiteuses (mimosa) et sur des agrumes confits (citron). La couleur jaune ensoleille la palette aromatique.
  • Palate : ferme, tonique. Ses contours élégants révèlent une architecture élancée et résolument tournée vers le haut. L’acidité des fruits frais qu’elle délivre généreusement (poire, brugnon, ananas), procure au milieu de bouche beaucoup de présence et de minéralité. Des notes bleutées d’ardoise viennent enrichir la palette chromatique. Au fur et à mesure, elle gagne en onctuosité et en gourmandise (brioche, amande).
  • Overall : longue, interminable. L’orge effectue un come-back plein de fraîcheur. Une fine couche de zan recouvre les fruits (ananas), qui reviennent eux aussi à la surface de la palette gustative. La rétro-olfaction est safranée et chocolatée. Le verre vide nous emmène dans un jardin parfumé par l’odeur du jasmin, des jonquilles et des jacinthes.
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

Merchant

Artist, Lands of Scotland, Malt Pedigree, Tartan, The Ten, Very Cloudy... all of these whisky ranges – composed of single malts and single grains – have one thing in common: they were all created by the team at La Maison du Whisky. They are the fruits of many decades of close collaboration with some of the most prestigious bottlers in Scotland. For some years the French importer and exclusive distributor of the classic ranges of well-known spirits producers, La Maison du Whisky was soon granted the very rare privilege of being able to complement these ranges with their own, bringing together two sets of expertise, two reputations and two complementary histories under one, single label.

The line

Baptised ‘Artist’, this new range makes no bones about proclaiming its identity. Cosmopolitan and contemporary, it draws its inspiration from the style that gave the Italian bottlings of the 60s and 70s their cult following. From the choice of whiskies (distillery, ageing process, age, strength, bottling procedure) to the design of the bottle and choice of label, every detail has been carefully considered. This range offers a fine presentation of both the whiskies and the artist whose works have been selected for the back labels.
