The Macallan M Black Decanter Series MMXVIII 2018 Release
The 2018 release of the Macallan M Black Decanter, a rich and slightly smoky sherry-matured single malt presented in a specially-crafted black crystal decanter from Lalique.
COLOUR: Raw Sienna
NOSE: Rich vanilla cream sweetness with light wisps of smoke and an earthy dark chocolate sweetness.
PALATE: Initially a rich combination of dried fruit and citrus and slowly this rolls into a rich peat smoke. It is a wonderful contrast, it is almost as if the whisky comes in two parts allowing an insight to the flavour before being enveloped in sweet peat notes. The light elements of smoked dried fruits and an almondy nuttiness makes it feel almost chewy.
FINISH: Long sweet dried fruit with a lengthy sweet peat flavour.
