|Nose||Orange and citrus fruits. Fresh zest, firm fruit. A slight waxy note fades to fresh green apples. Then the sweet stall: chocolate, thick fudge, boiled sweets, aniseed; caramel toffees whilst white chocolate truffles are hidden.|
|Taste||Initial light citrus zest with new oak quickly gives way to a juicier sweetness, thick and succulent, of lemon and orange. Raisin, sultana and apple, with a hint of cinnamon and ginger, are subtle.|
|Finish||Boiled sweets add balance to a glimpse of toasted oak to give a medium and soft finish.|
A one of a kind single malt which draws colour and flavour from maturation in smaller hogshead casks, making for a greater surface area of wood interacting with the whisky and creating an intriguing character influenced by Spanish and American oak casks.
The cask contributes the deep red mahogany hue. The depth of colour coupled with the complex flavour of REFLEXION is derive from the casks selected for this distinctive expression by Bob Dalgarno’s The Macallan’s Master Whisky Maker,#. REFLEXION is a bold celebration of floral and vanilla notes, punctuated with fresh apples and apricots.
