Brand New Release from The Macallan Exclusive to Travel Retail
This brand new Macallan is the first in a new series aimed at honouring the world’s visionaries by experimenting with the whisky making process. Inspired by surreal art, the Concept Number 1 has been matured in sherry seasoned oak casks and then transferred to ex-bourbon casks for a similar time period. It is crafted to explore the differing effects casks can have on a dram while highlighting the distillery’s commitment to wood management and mastery.
The results are once again astounding, with a whole array of notes including butterscotch, citrus fruits, green banana, ginger and soft oak spices bouncing off of each other, complimenting as they go. It’s an all-round wonderful single malt, from aesthetics to flavour profile, that is limited to just 84,000 bottles.As it is only available in travel retail, it’s tricky to get your hands on and numbers are very limited.
