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 71 Year Old is matured in a combination of sherry seasoned casks and barrels and bottled at 41.6% abv.
The nose has a sweet and spicy opening with wood spices, soft ginger, nutmeg and orange peel moving into rich vanilla. These characteristics continue on the palate with a sweet ginger sponge moving into the creamy vanilla flavours of a baked custard tart. The finish is rich in wood smoke, peach and hazelnut.
