This exceptional single malt draws its color and flavor from specially selected Sherry-seasoned Spanish and American oak casks. Unlike other whiskies from The Macallan, Reflexion has matured in smaller hogshead casks, which allow a greater surface area of wood to interact with the liquid to deliver an intricate and intense character driven by the influence of both Spanish and American oak casks.
The Reflexion decanter is just as exquisite as the whisky within it. Sculpted with an iconic triangular shape, the bottle features six facets, representing the foundation stones of The Macallan. A deep red mahogany hue, taken directly from the cask, is beautifully enhanced by the angular facets of the carefully crafted decanter. The depth of color coupled with the complex flavor of Reflexion, derive from the casks selected for this distinctive expression by The Macallan's Master Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno. Bold and full-bodied, Reflexion is a celebration of floral and vanilla notes, punctuated with fresh apples and apricots.
The Macallan Reflexion joins the other selections in the 1824 Masters Series, which have been created to showcase the beautiful natural range of colors and flavors in thier whiskies.
