The Macallan in Lalique 65yo "The Peerless Spirit" as it is official named, was released in 2016 and is the sixth and final bottle in Macallan's decade-spanning Six Pillars collaboration with French crystal maker Lalique, that started in 2005. The spirit is unusual for modern day Macallan as it is peated, due to post-World War II coal shortages necessitating malting with local peat. Matured for 65 years in two ex-sherry casks that were filled in November 1950, this is one of the oldest single malt Scotch whiskies ever released. Bottled at 46.3%.
Nose: Balanced with comforting notes of honey-dipped Madagascan vanilla pods, cinnamon and Moroccan dates.
Palate: Medium body with hints of cracked black pepper, cloves and delicately toasted cocoa beans.
Finish: Very long and deeply satisfying with a rich flavour of honey and dark chocolate.
