However,  Since its inception in 2002, Macallan’s Fine and Rare collection has seen over 50 vintage releases and comprises some of the most sought-after and singularly collectible bottlings from the distillery

A peated expression, with a lovely mixture of floral delicacy on the nose that’s joined by citrus fruit, toffee, vanilla pod, dried sultana and apricot, and gentle charred smoke.  The palate is oaky with more dried fruit and sweet nuttiness (almond, coconut, and cashew) aligned with caramelized apple flavor and more subtle smokiness.  The finish is drying with cinder toffee sweetness and spice and dying bonfire embers.
