The Macallan Rare Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky 750ml
The Macallan Rare Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky was introduced to the UK in mid 2015, after being launched in the US in late 2014. It's comprised of whiskies drawn from 16 different Sherry cask styles, chosen by Macallan's Master Whisky Maker Bob Dalgarno. A high proportion of these casks are first fill, and has resulted in a rich, spicy Speyside single malt, bursting with honey'd raisin, root ginger and decadent chocolate notes.
Macallan has created a tantalising single malt which sees Spanish oak pique the nose before admitting rich dried fruits and an edgy trickle of treacle. A hesitant sweetness enters, then oak returns, burnished and mature. On the palate a rush of ginger, nutmeg, and resin herald orange, sultana, and raisins with their restrained but pervasive sweetness. A hint of cloves, but with oak the undisputed maestro. The finish of The Macallan Rare Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky naturally occurring ruby-red spirit is long, lingering, and reflective.
