Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : vibrant golden yellow
  • Nose : fresh, elegant. The initial nose reveals a note of springtime, green barley muddled with exotic fruit (pineapple, banana). Creamy and vanilla, it gradually becomes medicinal (camphor), saline and spicy (curry, nutmeg). This complex nose then develops into heady florals (mimosa) and candied citrus fruit (lemon). Its yellow colour lights up the aromatic palette.
  • Palate : firm, invigorating. Its elegant contours reveal a slender, resolutely vertical architecture. The acidity of its generous helpings of fresh fruit (pear, nectarine, pineapple) gives the mid-palate great presence and minerality. Bluish notes of slate enrich the chromatic palette. It gradually gains in creaminess and sweet generosity (brioche, almonds).
  • Overall : long, almost never-ending. The barley makes a comeback burgeoning with freshness. A fine layer of candied liquorice coats the fruit (pineapple) that resurfaces at the forefront of the taste palette. Retro-nasal olfaction brings saffron and chocolate. The empty glass invites us into a garden filled with the fragrances of jasmine, daffodils and hyacinths.
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


Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.

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.
