Review: The Macallan x Sir Peter Blake
A limited-edition single malt from Macallan, An Estate, A Community and A Distillery is inspired by the appreciation of nature, beauty, and legacy shared by Macallan and Sir Peter Blake. Aromas of rich dried fruit, cinnamon, and clove fill the nose, complemented by notes of black pepper, orange oil, vanilla, treacle, and dark chocolate throughout the palate. This specially-created single malt is presented in a blue and green presentation box which houses the bottle, a certificate detailing the history and heritage on which the art was based, and Sir Peter Blake artwork printed on a scroll.
One of the most iconic pop artists in history, Blake is revered for his collage and pastiche artworks which were prevalent in the '70s and '80s and drove the pop art movement in the United Kingdom. For An Estate, A Community and A Distillery, Blake draws on inspiration from the Macallan Distillery and its surrounding landscapes and brings forth a nostalgic trip that transgresses Scotland's nature and iconic historical figures.
The bottle itself is magnificently crafted and highly collectible, a 95.4 proof single malt Scotch which will undoubtedly become one of the most coveted bottles ever released by The Macallan, and is beautifully presented with an artwork by Blake printed on a scroll and included with the bottle.
It is rare that a whisky release comes with such intricate presentation and novelty, however, such is the beast that is Macallan, they have created a most intriguing and enticing whisky to accompany what is a truly captivating experience. Complex, balanced, and with a bouquet of flavors, An Estate, A Community and A Distillery is a once-in-a-lifetime single malt Scotch that's testament to Macallan's status as the foremost innovator and leader in the modern Scotch making industry.
