    DESCRIPTION
    The sixth edition in the Macallan Masters of Photography series, this Speyside Single Malt celebrates the work of Steven Klein in a limited edition of only 1,000 bottles. A truly awe-inspiring whisky, each component of Steven Klein's art is reflected in the master whisky maker's vision, creating a very specific and unusual whisky that mirrors the art itself.

    Steven Klein has created a stunning tableau that captures and distils a single moment in time on film. Similarly, the whisky itself captures a moment in time. Inspired by the past, peated notes represent the smokiness of the industrial setting of the Klein film, while Macallan whiskies from the era were also smoky in profile. This combines with an incredible cask selection, including the first ever use of Rioja-seasoned casks by the Macallan, giving the whisky pinkish tones, again reflective of the Klein film colourways.

    Each bottle is presented in a stunning black leather case with a signed Steven Klein print, a distinctive black horse's head bottle stopper and a range of alchemic glassware including a dropper, an aroma still, an infuser, a cocktail class, a highball glass and a tumbler - all designed by Klein.

    The nose has sweet berries to the fore, hints of chalk and light vanilla moving to dried fruits and period oak, with caramelised ginger, orange and a wisp of smoke. The palate has a lingering sweet spice, opening to the briefest subtle smoke, before dark chocolate, orange zest, oak and a late wood smoke. The finish is soft and rich, ending in wood smoke.

    According to Charlie MacLean, "The whisky itself is superb! Bob Dalgarno, Macallan’s ‘Master Whisky Maker’ has excelled himself. My first – and probably, only! – 9 out of 10 this year… 10/10 is available only in Heaven!"
