The Macallan 78yo Red Bottling Note

The charity auction is now live (timeline below)! Why all the fuss? Read more about this approach over on the blog.

Behold, the oldest Macallan whisky ever released to date! Seriously, just behold it. This single malt spent 78 lengthy years in European oak sherry casks, until it was bottled for The Red Collection. The series is said to reflect the Speyside distillery's respect for time, tradition and craftsmanship, and we'd have to agree this does just that... And more!

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose: A fresh fruit medley of apple, peach and grape moving into fresh lime and verbena. Antique oak and soft leather move quickly into a luxurious dark chocolate and dried fruit sensation. The dried fruits are a balance of dates and raisins. Finally, a rich inviting vanilla cake.

Palate: Warming oak spice of nutmeg and ginger open into the rich dried fruits of raisin, prune, date and a hint of almond nuttiness. The oak rich whisky is warming yet dry with powerful treacle toffee and a baked apple sweetness.

Finish: A long thought provoking finish, all of the flavours from the nose and the taste make an appearance in this finish… Remarkable.
