Distillery

Macallan is Speyside’s best known heavyweight. To collectors, no name has the magic of Macallan. Originally, Macallan was only matured in oak sherry casks brought to the distillery from Jerez, Spain. Beginning in 2004, Macallan introduced the Fine Oak series (lighter), with the whisky mellowed in bourbon oak casks as well as sherry ones.

 

House Style: Big, oaky, resiny sherried, flowery-fruity. Spicy.

Tasting Notes

Taster: Michael Jackson

Nose: Incongruously, very fresh. Fudge with vanilla essence and pistachio nuts.

 

Palate: Silky. Fresh, appetising. sweet but not cloying. Light, fresh, delicate, notes of orange-blossom honey.


Finish: Very gentle acidity gives balancing dryness.



Comment: Delicious whisky, of true sophistication and style. Tasted blindfold, it seems a perfect whisky for today, not an evocation of the past. I would re-package it as 2041.

 

9.5/10

Description

The 1841 was the third in a series of controversial replica bottlings of Macallan from the distillery. Whatever the provenance of the bottles that were replicated, the whisky is meant to be tremendous (the late great Michael Jackson gave this a 95 point score), ensuring that this is one of the most popular of these famous (notorious?) bottlings.
