Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$6999. 00 Bottle
Originally available in the UK and parts of Asia, the "Exceptional Single Cask" series was launched in 2017, with all whiskies entirely matured in Sherry-seasoned casks filled between 1995 and 2004 and with age statements ranging from 12 to 22 years. Distilled in 2005 and bottled in December 2017 after maturation in a European Oak Sherry butt, Exceptional cask No.12 was finally bottled at natural strength with a tiny outturn of just 257 bottles. Fantastic colour (in fact, almost as deep as number one in the series) suggesting some serious sherry at play. One only to sell. Notes from Macallan... Rich, sweet dried fruits with a hint of chocolate orange. Balanced dried fruits with a spicy ginger and cinnamon burst. Long and spicy yet sweet. 59.4% Alc./Vol.
