The Macallan is a single malt Highland Scotch whisky. It’s usually available in the 12 year old single malt
version matured in Sherry Oak casks. The Macallan is distilled in their
own distillery (which is what differentiates premium single malt from
blended whiskeys) in Speyside, Scotland.
The Macallan is one of the best single malt Scotch whisky that I’ve
ever tasted. I opened a bottle at Luconia and drank half the bottle in
the first session (with some other people). The Macallan has a cork
instead of a metal cap, which is a plus point for me. It’s considered a
Highland single malt Scotch which puzzles me since The Macallan is
obviously a Speyside single malt from their distillery location.
The Macallan tastes great, subjectively better than Glenfiddich,
the other premium single malt Scotch that Luconia carries. The Macallan
12 year single malt Scotch comes in a rich gold color and goes down
really smoothly with hints of sherry and spice, with a sweet smoky
finish. The Macallan is usually priced around the RM 300 region in
drinking establishments, though YMMV depending on your location.
There is also a bottle of Johnny Walker Swing in
the background – it’s a neat bottle of blended whisky that actually
swings back and forth when you put it down on the table. It’s a great
presentation bottle but The Macallan tastes better. It comes highly recommended from me!
