Macallan

På denne side finder i vores store udvlag af Macallan single malt whiskyer. Macallan er verdensberømt for sin særlige smag og optræder ofte i både film og ikke mindst tv-serier i hele verden. Macallan whisky kommer fra byen Craigellachie i Moray i det nordligste Skotlands Speyside region og netop derfor kommer Macallan også med en helt særlig smag af eg som netop er kendetegnet for whiskyer fra Speyside. Duften af lyng og en lang række andre blomsteraromaer, som fx bregner, roser, passionsblomst, påskeliljer, tulipaner, geranium, jasmin og eukalyptus, er karakteristiske for Højlandets og Speysides maltwhiskyer. Det er blandt andet på grund af dens helt særlige smag at netop Macallan i dag er et af de mest populære whiskyer blandt samlere. Netop derfor har vi samlet et unikt udvalg af Macallan whisky til jer, så I kan finde lige præcis den flaske Macallan der passer til jeres samling og ikke mindst til netop jeres gane.
