The Macallan Whisky Tasting

We had a pleasure of hosting a Scotch Tasting last week with one of our favorite humans on the planet, Brian MacGregor. Brian is a whisky expert, enthusiast, aficionado and just plain great to be around kind of guy. And he also happens to be the market manager for one of world’s greatest and our favorite Scotch Whiskies, Macallan. We had an intimate group of personally invited guests that had the opportunity to learn and try some fantastic expressions. Brain took us through what makes Macallan one of the most known and respected distilleries in the world. To be invited to one of our future tastings / events please email us here

Rare Cask

Mahogany red.
Soft notes of opulent vanilla and raisin pique the nose, giving way to a sweet ensemble of apple, lemon and orange.
Oak resonates, timeless, polished and rich. Vanilla and chocolate lead the finale along with a light citrus zest.
 Full and warming.
