One of our top finds. This Macallan 1976 Fine & Rare is a single cask single malt that was distilled back in 1976. It underwent a 29-year-long maturation in a Spanish oak sherry butt. A decadent slumber for a rich whisky. Bottled at cask strength, this arrives with a cask-imparted colour and without chill filtration. An archetypal expression of The Macallan’s signature characteristics, this was bottled in 2006 and is a jewel in The Macallan’s history.
The nose is full to the brim. Notes of toffee apple, dates, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, oak, and peat smoke all weave together. The palate is woody, spicy, with hints of peaty smoke, peaches, and dates. Dried fruits, spices, and toasted oak all harmonise on a grand finish. One that may steal the show, even on the most special of occasions.
