Macallan was the first cult whisky I remember. The 18 yr. old was impossible to keep on the shelf, even in the stock market scare of 1987. So since then they've really had to up the ante. The new "Rare Cask," the newest edition of their 1824 Masters Series, aims right at the 1%, coincidentally enough, the percentage of their production that makes it into the bottling. Macallan's lavish spending on barrels is legendary. Since 1824, Macallan has made meticulous Scotch and this will be an exceptional non-exception.

Mahogany. Opulent, yet soft and slightly meandering, picture an orchestra setting up: quiet vanilla with deep notes, already in tune; raisin bold and booming, though only in spells; chocolate a star performer, but not a standout; a sweet ensemble of apple, lemon and orange, beautifully balanced with a spicy quartet of root ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Then oak conducts, mature and elegant, with patience only time delivers. The spicy quartet leads, loud and full, unwavering in their performance. Raisin dares to temper - and succeeds!! – but oak takes control; timeless, polished, rich and resonating. Vanilla and chocolate compliment each other in the background. Light citrus zest, yet full and warming.
