Intense flavor from a timeless thread of peat smoke. A beautiful combination of dried fruits, nutmeg, ginger and beautifully polished oak plus dates, figs and raisins, heavy but sweet.
Similar to the nose, it starts off with a strong sherry sweetness, followed with dry smokiness that reveals itself yielding to softer oak tones. Hints of vanilla and spices in the background.
Long and fruity but also sweet with an elegant wood smoke.
Macallan Rare Cask Black is a very complex and successful whisky. It will please a lot of whisky lovers with different choices due to its playful balance between peat and sherry. With its 450$ price tag and only 100 casks with no future plans for more, makes this more of a collector`s item than an everyday dram. The presentation of the bottle and packaging is amazing and really looks good.
