MACALLAN Decanter M Black - 2019 Release MMXIX 46,5%
Macallan Decanter M Black 2019 celebrates the union between the mastery of Lalique crystal and the manufacture of exceptional whiskey in one unique object. This new edition with a decanter of polished black Lalique crystal goes superbly with a subtly smoked Macallan whisky. Using the best barrels of the distillery, it is an ultra limited edition of Macallan, where the usual aromas of sherry barrels are accompanied by notes of smoked peat. Undoubtedly one of the most complex whiskies of the range, presented in an equally exception bottle.
Nose : Rich with hints of vanilla cream followed by slight traces of smoke and a sweetness of earthy chocolate.
Palate : An explosion of dried fruits and citrus, coated in rich peat smoke. These contrasts make it almost mellow.
Finish : Sweet dried fruit with a long, sweet peated flavour.
The Macallan Distillery was founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and schoolteacher, on a plateau above the River Spey in Speyside, North East Scotland. The original name of this area until 1400, was "Maghellan", taken from the Gallic word "magh" meaning fertile land and "Ellan" from the monk St. Macallan Estae. Farmers have been making whiskies on Speyside farms in this region for centuries, using the surplus barley during the quieter winter months. Today The Macallan's reputation is based on a product of exceptional quality and distinctiveness, founded with a set of guiding principles : place, people and passion. For each edition, the quality of the whisky largely depends on the oak barrels in which it is matured. This distillery carefully selects the best spirit from the stills. Only 16% is kept, creating a rich and concentrated distillate, making it one of the best in the industry.
