Annie Leibovitz Edition

Masters of Photography: Annie Leibovitz Edition, The Macallan 1996 – The Skyline

Introducing the fourth and final single malt in our Masters of Photography: Annie Leibovitz Edition – The Macallan 1996.  Each of the four single cask whiskies in the collection has been matured in different cask types to be completely unique and original.

The Macallan 1996 American oak butt is inspired by Leibovitz’s Skyline shot and perfectly mimics the hints of citrus and vanilla, leaving you with a full bodied finish.  In the accompanying image, leading man Kevin McKidd is literally on top of the world as he stands heroically on the iconic Tudor City building against the breath-taking Manhattan skyline at day break.  The dawn light in the shot is complemented by the lemon and citrus fruit nose of the light gold-coloured 1996 whisky.

  • Cask No 10019: The Macallan 1996, American Oak Butt
  • Colour: Light Gold
  • Nose: Lemon, citrus fruits, vanilla, cream soda. Freshly cut wood in background. Sweet dessert notes balance out
  • Palate: Viscous; initially oak flits in then departs to allow cinnamon, citrus, toffee apples to show their hand, only to reappear later
  • Finish: Medium finish but full bodied
  • ABV: 55.5%

We’re giving you backstage access to Leibovitz and McKidd in our behind the scenes video of the shooting of The Skyline portrait.  You can enjoy a dram of The Macallan 12 Year Old Sherry Oak while watching the legendary photographer at work.

If you are feeling inspired and would like into step into Annie Leibovitz’s shoes, we are giving you, The Macallan fans, a chance to enter our Masters of Photography Master Class – upload your portrait here. You could be in with a chance of winning an array of prizes including a trip to our spiritual home, where our precious single malt is created – Easter Elchies Estate.

Macallan is defined by wood; from every acorn planted to the hand-crafting of every oak cask. http://t.co/w6vTLlF4i7
