    The debut edition of M features Macallan casks from 1940 to 1991 blended together by The Macallan’s longtime whisky maker, Bob Dalgarno.

    The nose is complex with citrus touches, baked oranges, fruitcake, dried apricots, ginger, and a hint of vanilla. The taste is thick and spicy with cinnamon, orange peel, toffee, dried apricots, and a touch of plums underneath. The finish is dry and sweet with a good texture and notes of dried orange peel and marmalade, raisins, and a hint of licorice. A few drops of water cranks up the intensity and flavor to levels usually not associated with The Macallan. This is an extremely complex and well-balanced whisky.

    Producer's Note:
    Nose: Dried fruits ripen, then soften showing off velvet
    sateen. Vanilla accompanies green apple hand in hand, neither taking the lead.
    Ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon create an ensemble in the background, with polished
    oak offering to overstate, yet never does, but plays with a depth of resinous,
    juicy oranges.
    Palate: The palate opens rich in wood spices, slowly showing
    all their viscosity. Wood smoke flits in and out.
    Finish: The heavier raisin and sultana flavours take over,
    meandering to a long full finish.
