Macallan Enigma Single Malt Whisky

The Macallan was one of the first distillers in Scotland to be legally licensed. Since then, Macallan has built a reputation as one of the world’s leading single malt whiskies. The creation of The Macallan draws on the vital contributing influences of Spain, North America and Scotland - and of their respective natural raw materials, combined with traditional methods and craftsmanship.
The Macallan distillery was founded by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and school teacher. The original name of the area was “Maghellan”, taken from the Gaelic word “magh”, meaning fertile ground and “Ellan”, from the Monk St.Fillan - who held a close association with the church that stood in the grounds of The Macallan Estate until 1400. Farmers had been making whisky on their Speyside farms in the area for centuries, using their surplus barley during the quieter winter months.

The pinnacle of the Quest Collection Journey. A rich and intense single malt offers up mature oak with subtleties of cinnamon, vanilla and dried fruit.
Enigma is part of The Quest Collection, a travel retail range introduced as a replacement for The 1824 Collection in 2017. Matured in first-fill European and American sherry 'seasoned' oak butts and hogsheads from Jerez.

    Nose:   Mature oak opens to reveal dried fruits, vanilla, sweet pears and cinnamon.

    Taste:    Dried fruits and wood spices coat the palate. Ginger, cinnamon and oak give depth.

    Finish:    Full length. Long, lingering, memorable.
