An astounding 50 year old single malt Scotch whisky from The Macallan. Distilled over half a century ago and matured in European oak sherry seasoned casks, this extraordinary release from the legendary Speyside-based distillers is certain to raise the eyebrows of the whisky cognoscenti...
Nose: Wood vanillas open with a hint of spice. Ripe blackcurrants and an earthy tone combine with a background of subtle peat to give a rich body.
Palate: Sweet oak vanillas, fudge and toffee coat the mouth. Distinct black peppercorns follow to provide gentle warmth with deep sweetness joining from orange peel and figs.
Finish: Incredibly viscous mouth coating, long and slightly dry from the subtle peat notes.
