Macallan M Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky - 2020 release
M is the iconic result of an unprecedented collaboration between three masters of their crafts who shared the same unique objective - to create the world's most sophisticated whisky contained in an exquisite, exclusively designed crystal decanter. A masterpiece of design, M is brought to conception by creative director and legendary designer Fabien Baron, brought to life by Lalique mastery of crystal and brought to purpose by The Macallan.
Fashioned in the highest grade crystal, each hand crafted M decanter unites proven tradition with originality, drawing on over 150 years of Lalique mastery and dedication in its refinement and flawless clarity. Its six striking facets are Baron’s homage to The Macallan’s Six Pillars. Drawing on some of the richest and rarest casks maturing at the distillery, this is a complex and intense whisky. With a rich rosewood color derived from the sherry seasoned Spanish oak casks that have nurtured this special whisky through its maturation process, M delivers a complexity and sumptuous intensity rarely experienced in a single malt.
The nose opens on aromas of dried fruits ripen, followed by vanilla, and lifted by a whiff of green apple. Ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon create an ensemble in the background, with strong notes of polished oak and a depth of juicy oranges. The palate shows rich wood spices, slowly revealing all their viscosity. Wood smoke flits in and out. The heavier raisin and sultana flavors take over, meandering to a long full finish.
Sourced, crafted, toasted and seasoned under the watchful eye of The Macallan Master of Wood, these hand-picked casks are delivered to the demanding specifications of The Macallan Master Distiller and his team. Once filled, the maturing spirit remains undisturbed in the same casks for the necessary number of years it needs to be worthy of its destined Macallan expression. It is these oak casks that make the greatest contribution to the quality, natural color and distinctive aromas and flavors which lie at the heart of The Macallan single malt.
