The Red Collection is an exquisite range of distinguished and rare single malt scotch whiskies which capture The Macallan’s deep respect for tradition and craftsmanship. The distinctive red colour is inspired by The Macallan 'Choice Old' range, released over a century ago in 1903, and brought to life by beautiful illustrations by acclaimed Spanish painter and illustrator Javi Aznarez.
The Macallan 50 Year Old is made from sherry seasoned casks and barrels and bottled at 45.1% abv.
The nose has antique oak and soft leather, light floral notes, rich cocoa and black cherry and ginger. The palate has a warming combination of dried fruits and wood spices moving into dates and dark chocolate, orange oil and hints of sultanas. The finish is rich and complex, with a long lasting aftertaste of raisins, dates and creme brulee.
