(This post is part of the Scotland Re:Designed Series) If you ever have the chance to attend a Raise The Macallan Event, go…without hesitation. Macallan is a noteworthy scotch whisky, offering a bevy artisinal options almost too good to drink. Read on to hear about our evening with Macallan.
The event was much more than a simple tasting. As we waited in a line stretching half way down Mercer St. we could literally smell the whiskey in the air. Finally, we were ushered in to a SoHo event space that was transformed into two parts lounge and one part banquet hall. The room was atwitter with whiskey aficionados whetting their palettes with what I would call the ultimate whisky tease.
After sampling our initial pour, we sat down for a surprisingly educational and entertaining presentation by Charlie Whitfield, Macallan’s brand ambassador. He walked us through the tradition and history of what makes Macallan Whisky truly distinctive. From the attention paid to the grains, barrels, and overall process…we were able to appreciate the subtle notes and expressions found in the several varieties of Macallan. Smooth, smokey, unrelenting, and even sensual are some of the words that come to mind. It is without a doubt that Macallan does an outstanding job and their commitment to quality can be tasted in every sip. Every gentleman enjoys a nice glass of whisky, and Macallan truly delivers.
