This is the seventh limited edition release of the Macallan Masters of Photography series. Combining eight different types of cask including first-fill American oak, an ex-European wine cask and a spicy cask, the Magnum is a remarkably complex single malt with notes of spiced ginger, Candied dried fruits and a butterscotch sweetness, and sweet earthy peat finish. The gorgeous presentation box includes six black and white photographs, taken by 6 of the world’s leading photographers.
Nose: Light hints of peat layered into warm spiced ginger with mellow oak notes. Gently coming behind these notes, are an almost tangerine citrus and caramelised apple.
Taste: Candied dried fruits and a butterscotch sweetness with a tickling of spice that moves into a honeyed nut note.
Finish: Medium to long finish ending in sweet earthy peat notes.
