The Macallan James Bond 60th Anniversary Release Decade V Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
The Macallan has become James Bond’s whisky of choice in recent years, reflecting his appreciation for the finer things in life. The brands have shared many moments together on screen, including Skyfall when Bond drinks The Macallan Fine & Rare 1962 as an ode to the 50th anniversary. Now comes the 'Decade Series', celebrating Bond's 60th anniversary, expressed through six unique releases. The distinctive packaging brings to life the creative development of the films in a behind the scenes exploration of the Bond archives. It aims at bringing to life the innovations and inventions of James Bond across the years, and the packaging has been colour washed with one of the trending colours of the decade it represents. Decade V explores the Bond innovations and archives of the 2000s. The design features digital concept art of the Siena Gallery Interior from Quantum Of Solace (2008) and a driving sequence storyboard from Casino Royale (2006). Leaving the 90s behind, Daniel Craig embodies the Bond of the noughties. From his first appearance in Casino Royale, never was a card game presented so stylishly and with more tension in any other film. The setting, ingredients, character and dedication to craft combine to deliver an utterly compelling result. The packaging design features a dramatic car sequence from Casino Royale (2006), and a digitally sketched rooftop chase in Quantum Of Solace (2008).
The whisky itself was created by Master Whisky Maker, Kirsteen Campbell to reflect the character of Bond: A force of nature defined by his Scottish heritage. Like James Bond, the whisky exudes a sense of style and maturity which has evolved over the years and is consistent within all six bottles. 43.7% Alc./Vol.
Notes from Macallan... Swiss gold in colour. The nose is fresh and vibrant notes of lemon and lime, a sprinkle of sherbet, leading into a sweet vanilla and coconut, with a hint of dried fig and raisin. On the palate flavours of orange zest and fizzy sherbet with a lemon freshness, gentle oak and subtle ginger spice, leading into a deep dark chocolate, figs and baked apple tart with a honey drizzle. The finish is sweet and long with complexed layers.
