The Macallan Fine & Rare collection is a highly-coveted series of vintage releases from some of the best casks the Speyside distillery has to offer. Only a small number of bottles are released each year, with the earliest vintage dating back to 1926. This single cask vintage was distilled in 1979, matured for 40 years in a sherry puncheon and bottled in 2019. Only 338 bottles were produced. Bottled at a natural cask strength of 57.2%.
Nose: Rich dried fruits with gentle peat smoke, gives way to a hint of orange citrus, balanced with antique oak spice and warming ginger.
Palate: Fresh with oak spice followed with a richness of dried figs and dates, the gentle peat smoke in the background throughout.
Finish: Medium long with warming oak spice and honey sweetness.
