The Macallan M is born of a collaboration between three masters of their crafts: Fabian Baron; Lalique; The Macallan, with a unique objective: to create the most sophisticated whisky in the world contained in an exquisite, exclusively designed crystal decanter.
Nose: Dried fruits ripen, then soften showing off velvet sateen. Vanilla accompanies green apple hand in hand, neither taking the lead. Ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon create an ensemble in the background, with polished oak offering to overstate, yet never does, but plays with a depth of resinous, juicy oranges.
Palate: The palate opens rich in wood spices, slowly showing all their viscosity. Wood smoke flits in and out.
Finish: The heavier raisin and sultana flavours take over, meandering to a long full finish.
