'Effortlessly Bold'

This whisky was distilled on 13th October 2008 and has been aged for a total of 12 years in a combination of ex-Oloroso Butts and Hogsheads. Distilled at Macallan distillery and bottled by The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS).
Only 335 bottles released.

    Bottler’s notes:    The colour was dark as was the aroma with the main scent of dark fruits such as blackberries, plums and black cherries next to a sweet tobacco note. Big on the palate like a prune porridge topped with toasted walnuts and plenty of cinnamon. Took water well but be careful with the amount. We were rewarded with violet flowers, leather and cocoa powder on the nose as we got served glace confit blood oranges chopped through a creamy coffee semifreddo tart with sweet figs, raisins and molasses. In 2018 we combined selected Oloroso butts before returning the single malt to a variety of different casks to develop further. This is one of those casks.
