A legend of Speyside - Macallan. Massively popular and always in constant demand, Macallan have a sizeable distillery capable of producing over 10 million litres of alcohol a year, and there’s plans to make that massive number even bigger! On the label of our Macallan, there’s a giant man looking at Macallan’s Curiously Small Stills. Or is it a regular-sized man looking at a tiny replica of the Curiously Small Stills? Or is it a regular-sized man looking at the Curiously Small Stills which are in fact absolutely tiny?! It’s a riddle for the ages. Batch 5 was named Scotch Single Malt of the Year (Single Cask) in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2017.
Nose: Hazelnut cream, sultana, oak, sourdough bread with quince jam, fennel seed.
Palate: Waves and waves of dried fruit sweetness, dotted by sparks of ginger and tobacco.
Finish: Lingering chocolate and citrus peel.
