The Rare Cask Black Limited Edition Macallan has been created to celebrate the opening of the new Macallan Distillery, featuring stunning photography by Paolo Pellegrin and a bespoke flask from the distillery Visitor Centre.
Like a whisper of oak stained wood smoke weaving between sprays of tall grasses and fields of delicate fig trees, The Macallan Rare Cask Black Single malt scotch offers the chance to taste a new side of Macallan. The aroma of aged tobacco leaves lit with sparks of pepparkakor and cracked spices greet your nose from the first pour. Additional hits of sherry soaked figs layered in crushed sultana jam soon follow along with the sweet scent of freshly baked scones. Your mouth will dance with delight as an avalanche of sweet damson, dates and darkly roasted Demerara sugar rushes your taste buds with refreshing hints of black earth and peat moss just off the backend. The Macallan Rare Cask Black single malt scotch winds its way to a long and wonderfully smoke filled finish with further hits of melted dark chocolate layered over candied ginger … can we sum it up in one word for you? Oh yes, yes we can … epic!
