The Macallan has just unveiled the newest addition to their Fine & Rare collection; the 1991 Fine & Rare vintage. The $10,000 bottle is available only in limited quantities and available by email inquiry only.
This particular vintage is from cask No. 7021, an American oak Vasyma puncheon sherry seasoned in Jerez, Spain, which was filled in (you guessed it) 1991. Bottled at a natural cask strength of 49.4% abv, the brand’s Master Whisky Maker deemed it “intense yet soft.”
The 25-year-old glossy cinnamon colored whisky has notes of apple, dried fruit and vanilla, followed by ginger, nutmeg and almonds. On the palate, the taste is sweet spice, raisin and fig, with a finish of lingering fruit notes, and soft yet resinous oak.
Sounds decadent, and like the perfect Valentine’s Day treat for the lucky whisky drinker in your life.
