Sir Nick Faldo
A never to be forgotten prize awaits one lucky buyer in being able to take part in a one to one workshop with Sir Nick, former world no.1 and six-time major Champion.
A top of the range golf glove hand signed by Sir Nick Faldo awaits everyone who buys a bottle of our 31yo Macallan Premium Octave.
Chosen by legendary golfer, Sir Nick Faldo, each bottle of this Rarest Macallan 31 Year old bears his signature.
In honour of this we have called this release ‘Sir Nick’s Pick’.
This whisky, distilled at Macallan Distillery, is a stunning example of the use of Octaves that Duncan Taylor specialises in. Finishing this whisky in an Octave cask has added a whole new dimension of flavour and complexity to this stunning single malt.
COLOUR: Oloroso Sherry.
NOSE: A big sherried Speyside bursting with fruit and plum compote. Vine fruits, a background of sweet creamy chocolate. Surprisingly fresh and accessible, with youthful exuberance.
PALATE: Initial burst of sweetness tempered with spicy oak. Rich, intense fruity notes continue throughout. Oily mouthfeel and texture with toffee and leather making a late appearance.
FINISH: Wonderfully clean spirit married to perfection with the exuberant cask. The spice of the palate fades to a warming sweetness.
‘It was incredibly fruity and sweet, not what I would expect from such an old whisky, with loads of beautiful flavours that lingered on and on. Just delicious!’
Sir Nick Faldo.
“ The liveliness of the palate fades to a wonderful warming complexity. The maltiness reappears offering a wonderfully moreish almost refreshing whisky.”
“ A wonderfully clean spirit married to perfection with the exuberant cask. The spice of the palate fades to a warming sweetness.”
