Macallan kommer nu med deres hidtil ældste aftapning.
The Genesis Decanter aftapning blev producered kort efter anden verdens krig og lagt på fade i 72 år inden det aftappet. Der er kommet 600 flasker på markedet og vil være tilgængelig fra august i år hos forskellige forhandlere. The Genesis er aftappet ved 42% alc.



Nick Savage, The Macallan Master Distiller siger: "For its seventy-two years of maturation, the deceptively light colour hints that this is not an ordinary single malt. Reminiscent of a time gone by, it carries an exquisite balance of strong, sweet oak with the peaty spirit shaping its refined character. The whisky delivers surprise after surprise as aromas of fruit follow distinctive hints of peat, all the way through to the back of the mouth where it is finished off with a lingering hint of rich fruit and oak. Although delicate throughout all aspects, it provides an intense experience which acknowledges the distinguished history of The Macallan."

Noter (Macallan):
Colour: Golden Amber

Nose: A delicate peat starts, leading to a soft, aged oak smoke. A body of refreshing citrus lemons and green apples, with a background of vanilla pods and raisins, with the smallest hint of ginger.

Palate: Delicate peat smoke combines with a soft vanilla, and a surprising sweet oak smoke. A gentle wood spice combines with a delicate peat smoke, which gradually fades to leave a viscous mouth coating of citrus fruits and subtle green apples.

Finish: Medium and fruity, with a sweet oaky mouth feel.
