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!
Nose: 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.
Palate: Damson, dates and Demerara sugar. The earthy and herbaceous peaty elements take their time to reveal themselves.
Finish: A mixture of dark chocolate, fresh ginger and a whiff of bonfire smoke.
