Established 1824, The Macallan was one of the first fully licensed Distilleries in Scotland. The Macallan is defined by the harmony of components from Scotland, America and Spain, the most exquisite harvests of grain, as aged by the choicest oak casks, infused by vintages of fine Iberian Sherry. The Macallanís curiously small stills are the smallest in Speyside, enhancing the formation of sweet esters and minimising impurities, achieving the rich, fruity, ful bodied flavours so characteristic of The Macallan.
Amber colour. Floral, citrus sweet nose, a chorus of vanilla notes over freshly harvested grain. Raisin, sultana and cinnamon look on as toffee apples and candy floss step into the limelight. Fresh green apples and lemon mingle with cinnamon, ginger notes hover as fruit takes over, subtle oak lingering in the wings. Light to medium finish on a length of soft fruits, cereal, slightly drying.
