The Macallan No. 6 in Lalique
The Macallan // Highlands, Scotland
The Macallan No. 6 in Lalique is the latest (early 2015) and last release in the 1824 Master Series. No. 6 is chosen as the name to represent the Six Pillars of the Macallan; these six components form the foundation to the success of the brand and include their curiously small stills and their exceptional oak casks among other things. It is the latter that is showcased in this bottling. The whisky is aged in first-fill Spanish sherry casks from one Jerez cooperage. The whisky is sold in a Lalique decanter and is only available in a select few luxury establishments in Las Vegas.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask Typefirst-fill sherry
"Delicate floral notes and orange tea are some of the aromas found along with high notes of dried fruits like cherries, apples, and cranberries. Milk chocolate is another component along with vanilla bean. The flavor profile continues on this theme, but you almost don't want to drink as the aroma is so enticing. But of course you must succumb. The whisky is feminine and elegant on your palate with gentle barrel spices seeing you home. Should you find yourself in Vegas and if you have the means, we highly recommend picking one up."
