The Macallan 1824 Series Rare Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Speyside - Highlands
From the Distillery:
Nose: Opulent, yet soft and slightly meandering, picture an orchestra setting up: quiet vanilla with deep notes, already in tune; raisin bold and booming, though only in spells; chocolate a star performer, but not a standout; a sweet ensemble of apple, lemon and orange, beautifully balanced with a spicy quartet of root ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Then oak conducts, mature and elegant, with patience only time delivers.
Palate: The spicy quartet leads, loud and full, unwavering in their performance. Raisin dares to temper - and succeeds - but oak takes control; timeless, polished, rich and resonating. Vanilla and chocolate compliment each other in the background.
Finish: Light citrus zest, yet full and warming"
