M Black represents our dedication to Mastery and unwavering trust and confidence in our craft. This release marries hints of peat to the unmistakable, signature Macallan character. Rare, black ended casks holding peated spirit have been meticulously selected by the Whisky Mastery Team who have continued to push the boundaries of creativity and craftsmanship to create this unique expression.
The spirit matured in the sherry seasoned oak casks has gathered depth and distinction over time. The handcrafted Lalique black crystal decanter reflects the peat smoke within the whisky and the confidence which drives us as the Whisky Makers boldly marry classic Macallan notes with peated whisky.
Black Lalique crystal, one of the most complex materials in the glass blower's repertoire, has been used to house the precious spirit - requiring far greater skill and time to produce. A subtly smoky expression, it displays a rich natural colour of golden sunrise and is a harmonious balance of The Macallan’s classic character with an unexpected peated note, resulting in a complex single malt to savour.
