The Macallan M
M is born of a collaboration between 3 masters of their crafts: Fabien Baron; Lalique; The Macallan, with a unique objective: to create the most sophisticated hwisky in the world contained in an exuisite, exlusivley designed crystal decanter.
Nose: Dried fruits ripen, then soften showing off velvet sateen. Vanilla accompanies green apple hand in hand, neither taking the lead. Ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon create an ensemble in the background, with polished oak offering to overstate, yet never does, but plays with a depth of resinous, juicy oranges.
Palate: The palate opens rich in wood spices, slowly showing all their viscosity. Wood smoke flits in and out.
Finish: The heavier raisin and sultana flavours take over, meandering to a long full finish.
