2006 William Hepburn (Macallan) 10 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" Single Barrel Cask Strength Blended Malt Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1263810

Here again we have a "teaspooned" single cask of whisky, meaning the distillery has added a teaspoon of a second malt whisky to prevent the bottler from using the brand name. That doesn't mean we can't tell you who made the whisky, however; it just means we can't market it or label it as a single malt! This ten year old gem of a malt whisky was made at Macallan (all but that teaspoon) and has all the classic fruit flavor one would expect from the classic distillery. It's rich and round on the palate with bright and pleasant notes of stonefruit, honey, rich malted grains, and supple vanilla. It's utterly pleasing and for the price it's a whisky you can't turn your back on. Getting cask strength Macallan is hard enough these days, let alone finding a barrel for this price.

This whisky shows you exactly how good Macallan whisky really is because it's a snapshot of what the legendary Highland whisky tastes like without the sherry influence. There's no Oloroso character whatsoever: no toffee, or caramel, or nuttiness whatsoever. What remains however is pure texture. A creamy, rich, and inherently supple malt that is brilliant completely on its own, natural and with no makeup. It's brimming with sweet stone fruit and soft cereal grains, bolstered by just the right amount of vanilla from the oak cask. Macallan fans will go crazy for this. People who thought they didn't like Macallan will take a second look. You really understand what makes that whisky so special when you taste this.

Wow, this whisky caught me a bit off-guard. The fruitiness and the weight are much richer than the color gives off and the texture of the malt is concentrated and hearty. I never would have thought this was Macallan, yet it was interesting to see just how good their spirit is before it goes into sherry cask. A really fun little whisky to dig into.
