What does the world’s most expensive whisky, The Macallan M, taste like?
In a word, magnificent.
As soon as you lift the glass up to your nose, you are bombarded with an immediate explosion of candy sweetness with hints of ginger, spice, and everything nice. There’s fruits too, from green apples to ripe oranges, and dark fruits hovering on the edge.
On the palate, there is a surprisingly fresh zestiness accompanying an oily, mouth-coating texture that tastes like someone had extracted the pure essence of raisins and put it in the spirit. Complex layers of woodiness, spiciness, dark fruitiness, even a little bubblegum sweetness, dance across your tongue. Letting the whisky breathe for a while, I took my second sip, and a tad more woodiness and spiciness came through, and even a hint of smoke.
Long after you’ve emptied your glass, the long, velvety finish full of dried dark fruits like raisins and sultanas lingers on, teasing you and making you wish you could have another dram.
I suppose there’s a reason why the Macallan M has been called the “Ultimate Macallan”. M is a collaboration between three masters of their crafts – creative director Fabien Baron, crystal makers Lalique, and of course, The Macallan – to create the most sophisticated whisky in the world contained in an exquisite, exclusively designed crystal decanter.
A bottle of the Macallan M retails for RM22,000, in case you were wondering. But that’s not what makes it the most expensive whisky in the world.
In 2014, The Macallan M Imperiale six-litre Lalique set a new Guinness World Record for the most expensive whisky sold at auction, selling for US$628,000 (RM2.65mil) in a Hong Kong auction that raised funds for a host of locally based charities.
