The Macallan Elegancia 12 Year Old Highland Single Malt (40%)

| 3 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

 

A hard to find variation on the classic Macallan 12 y.o., matured in Oloroso  and Fino sherry casks which impart a burnished gold color that is warm and inviting.

 

macallan-elegancia.gifNose: Chocolate and licorice with sherry notes.

Taste: Rich with a smooth maltiness. Hints of Marsales wine, nuts, and cooked fruit.

Finish: Long and sweet, with coca and light wood smoke

 

Overall:  The Elegancia is a glowing example in their tradition of natural coloring.  A truly luxurious scotch that would be fine addition to any event.  Try it with dessert next to your French truffle or a nice brownie.

I found the Elgancia at Pearson Int'l Airport on my way to Costa Rica earlier this year. To date, I've not seen it in any of the LCBOs.

P.S. I hope we have some of this left!

I have a bottle of this with only a few measures left. I'm going to miss it. I've never noticed any licorice on the nose but hey all noses are different aren't they.

I have 3 bottles of Macallan Elegencia.
