#1 marketing guy: Heille, I had the idea of a fucking good concept for a new bottling
Marketing Guys #2: Eeeee, we passed all the names of dancers and all the tasks of the distilleries ... Kessé ... it is not easy to find catchy names ... We win our solid pay lately.
#1 Marketing Guys: Bin we will make a limited edition of 80,000 bottles
#2 Marketing Guys: Wow, Strong Tee
#1 marketing guy: And sherry casks are expensive, so we're going to do a double maturation but half & half bourbon and sherry, so we'll be able to reuse the casks faster or sell them to the other distilleries ... Schling schling! !! Must go back to the base, tasted with our bottles at 60000 $ we moved a little away from the poor. We need traffic jams at more affordable prices, like 150 $ 300.
#2 marketing guy: Serious, you impress me. Do you want to call it how?
#1 marketing guy: Concept, tse, as if it were exploratory and rare as an edition, we had worked hard to create this new masterpiece.
#2 Marketing Guys: Seriously my pot, I do not know why you do not have a more influential position in the shop, tee under pay, seriously.
#1 marketing guy: Ha ... wait, I heard that the master distiller of the distillery gave his resignation .. who knows ... Must aim high!
#2 marketing guy: Serious, do not break our team, send, stay so ... And you expected to ask how much for that?
#1 Marketing Guys: About 160-175 $ Canadian, when I look at our other major traffic jams, it's like price. The best thing is that we will put it only available duty free, so people will think that it is rare, and say that 160 $ duty-free is well worth 200-220 $ normally?!?
#2 marketing guy: Strong guy, really ... I propose that we make a beautiful box too, with beautiful colors and beautiful solid cardboard, tz a king deserves a beautiful throne, the same thing with quality whiskeys !
The nose is flat and inexpressive. Past chocolate notes, tasted when it starts to white on, sherry diluted with water, toasted wood leaves outside a few months to bad weather, breathless ginger and notes of pineapple and dried fruit. The mouth is flat and soporific with its flavors of dried oak barrel, milk chocolate seasoned with cherries and dried fruits, pineapple, a light touch of lemon, pinch of ginger and cinnamon. Caramel wood flavored finale sprinkled with cinnamon and ginger. You have to be imaginative to find qualities to this whiskey, not that it's bad but just ordinary screeching and unimaginative as a presentation, aside from marketing and the box that is cool. Probably I am not the target audience (I have rarely been with Macallan lately). I do not even remember the last bottle I bought from this distillery ... Michael Jackson, the whiskey appraiser, has to come back to his solid grave.
Nose: Macallan's malt is instantly recognizable, but here it is quite obvious. Alcohol is slightly aggressive, for a 40% is saying something. Flowers, vanilla and diluted honey. Some red fruits and a very distant impression of sherry. Palate: Texture a little bland, slow-cooked fruit, vanilla, oak cleared, some spices. Nothing bad, but nothing stellar either. Final: Spicy and sustained, probably one of the best aspects of this whiskey. We stay on some nice flavors on a length still appreciable. Balance: Not really bad, but extremely clumsy. A Macallan who defends himself not too badly, but at that price and in duty-free, I am afraid of having to advise you not to waste your time and your money with that.
