M by The Macallan represents a lifetime of whisky, using some of the rarest whiskies at The Macallan distillery. Crafted from seven specially selected, first-fill European oak sherry casks dating back to 1940, it is the richest, most complex and intense expression of The Macallan. It sits at the pinnacle of The Macallan range and is housed in a unique, geometric Lalique decanter designed by Fabien Baron, made from the highest-grade crystal.
M by The Macallan is one of the most complex and well-rounded whiskies ever crafted, a six-liter version of which is the most expensive whisky ever sold at auction ($628,000).
AROMA: Dried fruits ripen, then soften showing off velvet sateen. Vanilla accompanies green apple hand in hand, neither taking the lead. Ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon create an ensemble in the background, with polished oak offering to overstate, yet never does, but plays with a depth of resinous, juicy oranges.
PALATE: The palate opens rich in wood spices, slowly showing all their viscosity. Wood smoke flits in and out.
FINISH: The heavier raisin and sultana flavours take over, meandering to a long full finish.
