The Macallan Red Collection 78 Years Old
The Red Collection - 78 Years Old
78 Years in the Making
It has been an amazing and incredibly memorable experience to nose and carefully select the casks for The Red Collection. Creating this wonderful range simply would not have been possible without the skill and experience of the current whisky team, combined with previous generations of whisky mastery at The Macallan.Sarah Burgess, Lead Whisky Maker at The Macallan
Sunset on the Spey
A fresh fruit medley of apple, peach and grape moving into fresh lime and verbena. Antique oak and soft leather move quickly into a luxurious dark chocolate and dried fruit sensation. The dried fruits are a balance of dates and raisins. Finally, a rich inviting vanilla cake.
Warming oak spice of nutmeg and ginger open into the rich dried fruits of raisin, prune, date and a hint of almond nuttiness. The oak rich whisky is warming yet dry with powerful treacle toffee and a baked apple sweetness.
A long thought provoking finish, all of the flavours from the nose and the taste make an appearance in this finish….Remarkable.
