The Macallan Enigma Bottling Note
At the high end of Macallan's Quest Collection (released for the Travel Retail market) sits the Enigma, an expression drawn exclusively from European oak Sherry seasons casks. As you can imagine, these casks have imparted a wealth of rich, sweet, lip-smacking sherry notes to the Speyside single malt.
Nose: Root ginger, mint chocolate, poached pear and dates.
Palate: Diced almond, treacle, honey, raisin, raw cinnamon and a touch of cacao.
Finish: Enjoyably oak-y on the finish.
