This exceptional single malt takes its unique natural colour and character from first fill Spanish sherry seasoned oak casks handcrafted by the master coopers of Jerez de la Frontera, the home of sherry. No.6 is drawn from Spanish oak casks built by one cooperage in Jerez before seasoning for 18 months in the sherry bodegas with dry oloroso sherries. All of the whiskies were matured in first fill casks, maximising aromas and flavours. The beautiful design enhances the enticing, rich dark walnut colour of a classic Macallan character, a celebration of richness, spice and dried fruit with a layer of heady orange groves. Exclusively designed and crafted for The Macallan, this flawless Lalique crystal decanter pays homage to the single malt’s heritage and its guiding principles through its use of facets representing the Six Pillars, incorporating the iconic triangular feature as a key element of its creation.
Raisin, dates and figs dominate whilst sultana and toffee apples add texture and depth. The weight of flavour from the raisins is dark and rich with great viscosity. Dry ginger and soft cinnamon hint at the edges. Dark chocolate is majestic, vanilla sweetness lingers in the background.
Heavy and sumptuous. A rich fruit cake of raisin, dates, and figs, apples, sultanas, orange then ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and hints of clove. Oak notes are like velvet, soft and chic.
Silky smooth with a long and full finish.
