The Macallan M Black, 2020 Release

The Macallan M Black is an exception to the rule.
The exclusive 2020 release has a gentle particularity it owes to peat.

A Most Complex Release

There remain at The Macallan Estate rare, black-ended casks holding peated Macallan. The smoke-infused spirit matured in these sherry seasoned oak casks has gathered distinction and depth over decades.

Flavour notes of warming wood spices open to dark chocolate and ginger, with a rare, lingering, and characterful peat trace. An affectionate history of a whisky, it expressively chronicles bygone crafts of the generations that made it. Those lucky to meet it will never forget their rendezvous.
 
Subtly smoky and brooding it may be, but the whisky possesses the spark and breeding of a true Macallan. In its honour, its new home is hand crafted from black Lalique crystal.

A Celebration of Mastery

One of the most challenging materials in the glass blower’s repertoire, requiring more time and resource to produce than clear crystal. These individually numbered, slim and elegant decanters are flawless.

Their six facets are the inspirational acknowledgement of The Macallan’s defining six pillars. Designed by the Gallic creative visionary, Fabien Baron, the decanter was one of the most challenging that Lalique, true masters of the art, had encountered. Contemporary yet classical, their iconic realisation is a reverential triumph.
