Macallan Rare Cask Black
This is an interesting Travel Retail only bottling which has gone mental at auctions with people paying around double the £300 selling price which is crazy especially as it's still available to buy.
Let's see how this tastes and whether it is worth the £600-£700 that it's going for at auctions.
For me there's none of the smoke as I was expecting and a whole lot more rubber than I would ever want to find in a dram.
This is certainly not worth the £600 at auction and I'd be hard pushed to pay £300 for this as a drinker.... I really think most people buying this would be doing so as part of a collection.
There's something in here that very very familiar and reminds me a lot of the Glenmorangie Signet it's juicy plump raising and dried fruits and chocolatey, there's a splash of smoke in here but it hard to find and hidden behind much more rubbery balloon notes than I'd prefer.
Rich and juicy with a tang of oriental spiced and chocolate, there's a tang of chimney smoke and toasted white bread then more of that rubbery balloon note
Spicy, rubbery, and tangy and quite short
