Last month we released four Whiskies which marked our return following a bottle a design project.
The marquee release of this batch was the limited edition Macallan.
The spirit was originally acquired from a larger cask release but was filled into a smaller Octave cask which could only fit around fifty litres. The result is a quicker rate of evaporation and a greater amount of wood exposure for the spirit which produces deeper flavour. This process creates a unique flavour profile limited only to the spirit in the octave – in this case it was only twenty bottles as that was all the that could be bottled from the octave for this release.
The strength of 43.5% is natural and a result of the increased evaporation caused by the Octave and old age of the Whisky.
At twenty seven years old our rare old Macallan presents a complex and aromatic tasting experience that includes orange, ginger and cocoa.
The small batch release is an exclusive Ladyoftheglen.com online exclusive.
