One of our favourite malts, Highland Park, has introduced a cask strength (63.3 ABV) version (thank you!) that delivers buckwheat honey aromas complemented by mild smoke, baked apple, a dash of toasted grain, and a whiff of sultana. Similar nuances reappear in the mouth, with the powerful palate also introducing some warm, toffee notes. A big whisky with a gentle side.
We had the opportunity to be “virtually introduced” to The Macallan Edition No. 6 during an online tasting with The Macallan Brand Ambassador Cameron Millar. The sixth (and final) of The Macallan’s Edition Series, Edition No. 6, celebrates the power of the mighty river Spey. Aged in a combination of American and sherry oak, this is an aromatically captivating dram. Expect a complex nose of baking spice, vanilla, dried fruit, sweet oak, toffee, and caramel. Warm, round, and supple in the mouth, it offers flavours of dark chocolate, pear/citrus fruit, dark plum and mocha, trailing off with a memorable dried apricot finish.
Rich, complex, elegant and silky-smooth, with dried fruit, honey, vanilla, almonds and smoke, a long, full finish, a touch of spice and well-balanced alcohol.
Clean and lush with caramel, honey and citrus peel, and a touch of nuttiness and cocoa-covered butterscotch candies.
Delicate and easy-drinking, with honey, ginger, citrus and almonds; lovely texture, finishing long with vanilla, spice and citrus. Enough character for the seasoned scotch drinker, but approachable enough for the novice.
Elegant and warm with an underlying dried-fruit sweetness, orange peel, chocolate, and nutty flavours, a sleek, viscous mouthfeel, hint of spice and long, lingering finish. Great match with chocolate-covered orange segments.
Highland Park is arguably the most balanced of all Single Malts. Nose reveals subtle peated malt combined with floral and spicy overtones. Mouth-filling flavours convey a wide spectrum of fruit, malt, spice, refined peat smoke and an elusive herbal mineral note on the finish.
