Chocolate and Macallan whisky, is it Christmas already? This Macallan Harmony Collection Rich Cacao is a limited annual release made in collaboration with the Roca brothers at Casa Cacao, a hotel and chocolate factory in Girona. Through this unique collaboration, rare, indulgent casks have been selected to pair harmoniously with fine chocolates, for a rich, and special dram. This expression uses The Macallan’s traditional sherry seasoned European oak with sherry seasoned American oak casks. In homage to its chocolate influence, this expression takes a keen interest in sustainability. It is presented in a recyclable gift box, made using discarded husks from cacao pods.
Aromas of chocolate fondant, citrus, ginger, honey, and oak arrive on the nose. Dark chocolate, honey, dried fruits, vanilla, and cinnamon all are present on a rich palate. The finish is long, with rich, velvety chocolate notes.
