Whisky drinkers know that an all-rounded whisky experience goes beyond taste; scent and colour round up the trifecta. Drawing on this, The Macallan launched its luxurious The Macallan Rare Cask single malt Scotch whisky in a rich ruby hue. And to help you welcome the Lunar New Year season, this exquisite blend also comes in an auspicious red box decorated with a red band.
Its new eye-catching packaging that embodies luck and prosperity is just a bonus. The Macallan has devoted nearly 200 years of expertise to creating a whisky that truly showcases the harmony between a spirit and the casks it matures in. Reputed for using only the most exceptional of casks, The Macallan handcrafts its tannin-rich Spanish oak casks in the town of Jerez before seasoning them with dry oloroso sherry. Such endeavours, undertaken before a cask is even filled with whisky, further contribute to The Macallan’s outstanding quality, colour, flavour and aroma.
“Our commitment to sherry seasoned oak casks is unquestionable and Rare Cask showcases The Macallan at its very best,” offers Master Whisky Maker Bob Dalgarno, whose expansive knowledge of casks enables him to distinguish the best that deliver the blend’s intense character.
Warm in colour and rich in flavour, the Rare Cask teases you with its opulent aroma before a savoured sip reveals the blend’s bold confidence. Every drop tantalises the palate with an ensemble of vanilla, chocolate, raisin and spices that culminates in a light citrus zest. With a finish that’s full and warm, it is especially apt for celebratory occasions.
Toast to the Lunar New Year with this rich whisky — its attractive coffret adds that festive touch — or present it as a gift to your loved ones. Grab one at $475 for a 750-ml bottle, from The Oaks Cellars and Olde Cuban.
