Annie Leibovitz Edition
Masters of Photography: Annie Leibovitz Edition - Cask No 14007: The Macallan 1995
Now you have had a chance to take in the stunning photography shot by the legendary Annie Leibovitz for our third Masters of Photography series, we want to give you a closer look at the four very special whiskies that form part of this limited edition…
The Macallan Masters of Photography: Annie Leibovitz Edition comprises of 1,000 limited edition bottles. Each bottle contains one of four unique single malts that reflect the mood of the signed Annie Leibovitz print that it is paired with.
The four single cask whiskies have each been matured in different cask types to be completely unique and original. The first bottle is a 1995 sherry oak hogshead. It perfectly reflects the rich setting and contemplative mood of leading man, Scottish actor Kevin McKidd as he has a reflective moment in the Library. The deep red mahogany 1995 whisky with rich notes of raisin and chocolate orange has a long, lingering finish which really captures the essence of the photo.
Colour: Red Mahogany
Nose: Rich raisin sultana and chocolate orange arrive almost together, followed closely by toasted apple, ginger and clean oak
Palate: Toasted apple, ginger and oak note their intent, but are not to be outdone as orange and dried fruits step out
Finish: Long lingering, full
