    Nose:
    aromas of creamy vanilla, sweet spices and toasted oak, nicely balanced by floral aromas and notes of fresh citrus fruit.

    Taste:
    sweet attack with notes of vanilla, toffee, dried fruit and ginger. After this it becomes fresher and spicier with notes of citrus peel, ginger and nutmeg.

    Finish:
    long and warm finish with fine drying notes of spicy oak.

    Note by the Macallan Distillers

    Directors Edition

    Discerning directors will appreciate this

    whisky's extraordinary smoothness & elegance.

    Nosing and Tasting Notes;

    The colour is rich amber. On the nose, vanilla

    and light oak are perfecly balanced with

    citrus and floral. The palate is sweet with

    lemonpeel, vanilla and a hint of ginger. The

    finish is long, leaving a hint of sweet spice.

    The 1700 Series from The Macallan is a range of Single

    Malts for those who demand and appreciate the finest in

    life. The whiskies, hand selected at the peak of maturity

    by The Macallan Whisky Maker, are both rich in colour

    and complex in flavour.
