The wait has been long but they're back. The iconic Macallan distillery have brought back age statements for many of their beloved expressions!
Words can't express how happy we are so we've decided to celebrate at our next Scotch Club by tasting 5 delectable Macallan drams PLUS you'll also take home your very own 700ml Bottle of Macallan Fine Oak 12 (included in the ticket price).
Here is what we are tasting Tuesday 3rd October...
Macallan 12yo Fine oak : A delicate and smooth whisky. Summer nectarines, sugared almonds and vanilla toffee on the nose balanced with spicy oak and golden malt. Rich and sweet on the palate - sherried malt, sweet plump raisins, and orange peel notes mellowed by warm oak. A long finish of vanilla and sultana.
Macallan 12yo Double cask : Embodied with the glow of the harvest sun this whisky is creamy butterscotch on the nose with a hint of toffee apple, candied orange, vanilla custard, and newly felled oak. The palate is deliciously honeyed with wood spices and citrus, balanced with raisins and caramel. The finish lingers with oak - warm, sweet and drying.
Macallan 15yo Fine oak : This expression is rich straw in colour with a 43% ABV. The nose is sublime and full with rose and cinnamon. Flavours of rich intense chocolate with a hint of orange and raisin which lingers on long through the finish.
Macallan edition no2
The colour of this extremely limited edition is that of Golden Syrup and comes in at 48% ABV. Treacle, ginger, toffee apples and rich fruits on the nose., with layers of vanilla open into tropical fruits and subtle green wood. A warm palate of spice, as cracked black pepper and cloves join hints of chocolate, brown sugar, oak and nuts. The finish is full, slow, warm and wonderfully viscous.
Macallan Rare cask
A suitable Mohogany colour to suit its decadence. The nose is opulent, yet soft and slightly meandering - quiet vanilla with deep notes of raisin, chocolate & fruits beautifully balanced with ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, with an overtone of oak. A spicy & sweet palate dominant in oak with vanilla & chocolate undertones. Finished with a light citrus zest.
