Macallan Reflexion V5 Single Malt
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Highland|
This exceptional single malt draws its color and flavor from maturation in smaller hogshead casks, allowing a greater surface area of wood to interact with the whisky to deliver an intricate character influenced by both Spanish and American oak casks. The depth of color and complex flavor of Reflexion is derived from the use of first-fill casks, carefully selected for this distinctive expression to accentuate its aromas and flavors.
Bold and full bodied, Reflexion is a celebration of floral and vanilla notes, punctuated with fresh apples and apricots. Color: Blood Orange Nose: Fresh zest of orange and citrus fruits. A slight waxy note fades to fresh green apples. Robust notes of chocolate, thick fudge, boiled sweets, aniseed and caramel toffees with subtle white chocolate truffles. Fresh bananas and sweet oak arrives last. Palate: Initial light citrus zest with new oak gives way to the succulent sweetness 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.
