Reflexion is an expression in honor to Macallan’s fifth pillar, which showcases the whisky's deep mahogany color sucked naturally out of the first-fill hogshead casks. These smaller 200-liter casks allow the spirit to interact with a greater wood surface area. Reflexion is presented in a decanter designed to reflect the light in a way that shows off its natural beauty.

Tasting Notes

"All the classic Macallan notes mingle in this fine expression. Rich caramel bow to spices and candy-floss sugars. The first taste is colossal, juicy sherry with raisins spritzed with the Macallan’s signature citrus zest. Crisp oak weaves in and out until the finish snaps to a pleasant citrus bitterness with roasted nuts and chocolate. A soft wave of baking spices coasts by. This whisky won’t improve your appearance or help with your spelling, but you feel a little wiser for experiencing it. "
