The Red Collection is an exquisite range of distinguished and rare single malt scotch whiskies which capture The Macallan’s deep respect for tradition and craftsmanship. The distinctive red colour is inspired by The Macallan ‘Choice Old’ range, released over a century ago in 1903, and brought to life by beautiful illustrations by acclaimed Spanish painter and illustrator Javi Aznarez.
The Macallan 40 Year Old is made from sherry seasoned casks and bottled at 48.1% abv.
The nose has orange and grapefruit combining with dark chocolate, along with antique oak and wood spices, fig and poached pear. The palate has warm spices, with ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon with vanilla. Malty notes and fig are present throughout before a long finish with delicate wisps of woodsmoke.
