" Delectable notes of oloroso Sherry, dried date, dried fig, caramel and toffee lead the nose. The palate opens with a roar of flavorleather, dried date, cocoa powder and toffee. The finish is long and gentle with hints of honey, gingerbread and dried cherry, plus a cinnamon and cayenne tickle. A delicious and complex sipper." - KARA NEWMAN
"The Macallan Estate is the Whisky Makers tribute to our heritage and home. It is an extremely special new single malt containing rare spirit from a proportion of the barley grown at Easter Elchies estate, which is distilled just once a year over the course of a single week. Created by Whisky Maker Sarah Burgess, The Macallan Estate is a celebration of the single malts peerless provenance and heritage.
The 485-acre Easter Elchies estate is set within the legendary Speyside region of Scotland, where The Macallan has been creating extraordinary single malts since 1824. Its carefully tended barley fields are located on the banks of the River Spey, overlooked by The Macallans new award-winning distillery. The Macallan Estate is presented in a striking gift pack featuring a hand cut slate panel representative of the Scottish landscape of our home. Inside, aerial photography showcases the estates impressive barley fields on the banks of the beautiful River Spey.
The Macallan Estate delivers a subtle hint of citrus which balances the traditional sherried richness, resulting in a complex single malt with an extraordinarily long finish.
