Macallan Oscuro Lalique Rearing Horse 46.5%abv
Macallan is a name synonymous with quality whiskies and Lalique is synonymous for creating beautiful jewellery. The two have teamed up to create a range of wonderful range of unique presentation packs. This particular one depicts a rearing Kazak horse, which symbolises speed and freedom, and was released only to the Asian travel market. Only 300 were made. Oscuor means ‘dark ‘or ‘with very little light’. This is a reflection on the whisky which was matured in sherry casks, a number of which were ‘first fill’. The whisky is dark, rich and very satisfying.
The colour is a dark copper and the nose offers dark woodland aromas. Chocolate with orange and creamy vanilla. The taste is soft, citrus; orange with a suggestion of apple. The finish is long and lingering with a touch of wood smoke
