M is the iconic result of an unprecedented collaboration between three masters of their crafts who shared the same unique objective – to create the world’s most sophisticated whisky contained in an exquisite, exclusively designed crystal decanter. A masterpiece of design, M is brought to conception by creative director and legendary designer Fabien Baron, brought to life by Lalique mastery of crystal and brought to purpose by The Macallan.
Nose: Dried fruits ripen, then soften showing off velvet sateen. Vanilla accompanies green apple hand in hand, neither taking the lead. Ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon create an ensemble in the background, with polished oak offering to overstate, yet never does, but plays with a depth of resinous, juicy oranges.
Palate: The palate opens rich in wood spices, slowly showing all their viscosity. Wood smoke flits in and out.
Finish: The heavier raisin and sultana flavours take over, meandering to a long full finish.
