Whisky or Whiskey

Insider knowledge: The Macallan Coronation Bottling - In Celebration of the 60th Anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be The Macallan Coronation Bottling - In Celebration of the 60th Anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation whiskey, as opposed to whisky.

The Coronation Bottling Bottling Note

STRICTLY ONE PER CUSTOMER

A limited edition commemorative release from The Macallan featuring two quite different, 35cl bottles of sherried Speyside whisky. Only 1953 bottles have been produced for the UK market to mark the 60th anniversary of Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953, with the Windsor red, blue and gold packaging having been designed by David Holmes.

The golden whisky features a iconic photo of the Queen in 1953, taken by Cecil Beaton, and was matured in American Oak whilst the bottle with the deep bronze (mahogany in the bottle) hue features a portrait taken by Julian Calder in 2004 and is matured in European Oak casks from Spain.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Cecil Beaton Bottle (58.1%)
Nose: Initial Sherry gives way to lightly salted cashew nuts, Sun-Maid raisins and orange oil. Wine gums and banana develop on a rich, syrupy nose.
Palate: Dignified but creamy oak and spice with sultanas. Creamy Wine Gums again on the tail with a little water.
Finish: Pleasing, subtle oak and a touch of cherry.
Overall: Majestic.

Julian Calder Bottle (55.7%)
Nose: A sweet, rich start becomes more substantial with dark oak notes and honeycomb. A little water opens this up for fuller, rich, dark Christmas cake, dates and demerara.
Palate: Oak intensity is saved by exquisite espresso. Again, water helps here, revealing prunes, dates and tobacco.
Finish: Long with oak and cocoa.
Overall: Magisterial.
