Macallan Rare Cask Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Highland|
Color: Mahogany. Nose: Opulent, yet soft and slightly meandering, picture an orchestra setting up: quiet vanilla with deep notes, already in tune; raisin bold and booming, though only in spells; chocolate a star performer, but not a standout; a sweet ensemble of apple, lemon and orange, beautifully balanced with a spicy quartet of root ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Then oak conducts, mature and elegant, with patience only time delivers. Palate: The spicy quartet leads, loud and full, unwavering in their performance. Raisin dares to temper - and succeeds!! - but oak takes control; timeless, polished, rich and resonating. Vanilla and chocolate compliment each other in the background Finish: Light citrus zest, yet full and warming.
