As any whisky collector will know, some drams are just quite simply fascinating. We think this one fits the bill. A 2016 bottling of Macallan from its Fine & Rare series showcases a dram distilled in March 1991 and brought up in 2016. It matured in American oak Vasyma puncheon cask, sherry seasoned in Jerez, for 25 years. This Highland single malt whisky is as Macallan as can be. Bottled at 49.4% abv, this is a showstopping edition in a highly sought-after series.
Aromas of apple, dried fruit, vanilla, almonds, and nutmeg arrive on the nose. The palate is sweet and spicy, with hints of raisins and figs. The finish is warming, fruity, soft yet resinous, with a velvety sweetness.
