The Macallan M – Masters Decanter Series
Part of The Macallan Masters Decanter Series created to showcase the beautiful range of The Macallan’s natural colour, M is the iconic result of an unprecedented collaboration between three masters of their crafts who shared the same unique objective – to create the world’s most sophisticated whisky contained in an exquisite, exclusively designed crystal decanter.
A masterpiece of design, M is brought to conception by creative director and legendary designer Fabien Baron, brought to life by Lalique mastery of crystal and brought to purpose by The Macallan.
Drawing on some of the richest and rarest casks maturing at the distillery, this is a complex and intense whisky. With a rich rosewood colour derived from the sherry seasoned Spanish oak casks that have nurtured this special whisky through its maturation process, M delivers a complexity and sumptuous intensity rarely experienced in a single malt.
NOSE: Dried fruits ripen, then soften. Vanilla accompanies green apple hand in hand. Ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon create an ensemble in the background, with strong notes of polished oak and a depth of resinous, juicy oranges.
PALATE: The palate opens rich in wood spices, slowly showing all their viscosity. Wood smoke flits in and out.
FINISH: The heavier raisin and sultana flavours take over, meandering to a long full finish.see less
