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.
Golden sunrise in colour. The nose is all dark chocolate and cherry, moving into vanilla and peat. Delicate wood spices, hints of dried fruit and treacle. On the palate warming wood spices and peat with black forest fruits opening into vanilla, dark chocolate, ginger and fig medley. Ginger continues throughout as the combination of orange oil and peat gently rises and falls. The finish long lingering peat smoke with a raisin sweetness.
The Macallan M Black is utterly unique. Precious, peat infused single malt, Lalique finesse and lateral creativity are married seamlessly. This remarkable release is truly one to cherish.
