Smoky Macallan?! Yes indeed friends, such a thing exists! Macallan Rare Cask Black was made from a marriage of less than 100 casks, resulting in an expression that shows off a fascinating combination of rich peat smoke and Macallan's characteristic Sherried power. Peaty whisky is very much a rarity from Macallan, so this is very much an exciting bottling!
Tobacco-rich smokiness, with spicy hints of old oak and pepparkakor. Heavily Sherried notes of fig jam and buttery sultana scones give away the whisky's Speyside roots.
Damson, dates and Demerara sugar. The earthy and herbaceous peaty elements take their time to reveal themselves.
A mixture of dark chocolate, fresh ginger and a whiff of bonfire smoke.
