The Macallan and Chinese New Year

January 14, 2018 – Paying homage to Chinese New Year which starts February 16, The Macallan is issuing a limited edition gift box featuring the Year of the Dog.

The handsome box contains two bottles of The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.  For collectors, there’s one to drink and one to add to the collection.  It’s also a fabulous Valentine’s Day gift, which is celebrated two days prior on February 14.  Talk about nailing it!

With only 2,500 packs released in the U.S., start looking for the select retailer in your area that has stock right now.  The Macallan doesn’t sit on shelves very long, especially if it is a special, limited edition.

The eleventh sign in the Chinese Zodiac, the dog is regarded as an auspicious animal by the Chinese. If a dog happens to come to a house, it symbolizes the coming of fortune.  Receiving a gift of two bottles of The Macallan is indeed good fortune.  The suggested retail is $130.

Tasting notes describe the color as harvest sun; the nose as creamy butterscotch, toffee apple, candied orange, vanilla custard and fresh oak.  The palate features ginger, nutmeg, citrus, caramel, raisins and resin.  Oak lingers, warm, sweet and drying on the finish.
