The Elysian Whisky Bar
This is the first out of two bottles that formed the closing of an amazingly popular bottling series done by Shinanoya called "The Chess Series". The series started in 2007 with a Laphroaig "Knight", and now 10 years on, to finish it off, we present to you the "King White". Macallan 1995, 20yo, matured in a Bourbon Hogshead #11253, 1 of 78 bottles, 53.4%. Macallans are amazing in sherry casks, we all know that. But have you had a good Macallan from a bourbon cask, a good bourbon cask? This is a truly sensational whisky, and it truly shows how good the actual spirit of Macallan is. And wow, what an amazing selection as usual from our friends at Shinanoya!!! On the nose, wow, that creaminess. Hint of nuttiness, rich, sweet, with some white flowers. Really complex and inviting. Reminiscence of the recent Speyside 1973s that we have been tasting. Palate is bright, peaches and cream, stonefruits, juicy orchard fruits, elegant with a long finish.
Don't miss this one guys.
